Eric Domingo and his mother, for the Guiness Record in the Seville Marathon
The athlete Eric Domingo will try to beat the Guinness Record pushing his mother in a wheelchair and suffering from Multiple Sclerosis getting off at 3 o'clock in the Zurich Marathon in Seville, which is played this Sunday through the streets of the Spanish capital
To do this, Eric Domingo, ASICS FrontRunner athlete, you must complete the 42,195 kilometers in less than 2 hours, 58 minutes and 40 seconds, plusmarca actual, which would culminate a challenge that began years ago when he began a 10-kilometer race pushing the chair of Silvia Roldán, his mother.
A beautiful story of overcoming
The story of 42 # 42kmcorriEMdo ’is about giving visibility to Multiple Sclerosis, a chronic neurological disease that affects the central nervous system and is autoimmune. Silvia Roldán was always a very active person, but for more than 5 years she lives in her wheelchair.
In May 2016, Eric Domingo wanted to do something special for his mother and found an official race for Multiple Sclerosis, in Barcelona, and traveled his first 10 kilometers together. In September 2017, Domingo ran the Zurich Marathon in Barcelona with Silvia to raise funds for the Multiple Sclerosis research. He raised 2,000 euros and completed the distance in 3 hours and 23 minutes.
A year later, Domingo again ran the Zurich Marathon in Barcelona, improved his time (3h14) and launched the #YoDoyMisPasos campaign. “I am excited to run the Zurich Marathon in Seville, it gives me a lot of peace and incredible freedom,” said Silvia.
"Running with my mother has made me realize that there are limitations, but not limits," said Eric Domingo, who on Sunday will try to claim that neither Multiple Sclerosis nor any other disease can feel like living and overcoming.
