The story behind

Hello*

While planning our 5499km.com adventure we both (Berni&Lukas) came to the point that this trip should be dedicated to a good cause. And this is why we chose Wings For Life:

1) For us nothing seems to be more scary than being paralysed from one second to the other. We can hardly imagine how it feels when someone gets this diagnosis and knows that he will be in the wheel chair for probably the rest of his or her life.

2) Wings For Life is supported by Red Bull. The company itself is of course interesting, however it is more interesting that Red Bull is covering all administrative costs. This means that €1 donated to Wings for Life will be €1 spent on the research program. That´s a fair deal we think.

3) With the money raised via Sponsors, Friends, Families and Supporters we help finance a movement that might be able to change the world. The feeling of being part of that sublime project is intense and energising.

We are looking forward to your support of our 5499km.com Wings For Life Project - each € counts !

You can donate directly on this Wings For Life Platform - just because you like our project - furthermore , if you are interested in sponsoring a leg on our route and get your personalized post on 5499km.com, please visit www.5499km.com/route/ pick a leg of your taste and contact us.

Now it's your turn to help! We are looking forward to your support of 5499km.com and Wings For Life - together we will change the world
