THE 25,000 MILE LOVE STORY chronicles the amazing five year journey of endurance athlete Serge Roetheli as he endeavors to run a distance equal to the earth’s circumference to raise money and awareness for the world’s impoverished children. Accompanied by his wife Nicole, who drove a motorcycle with their supplies and pup tent in tow, the Roethelis were confronted with challenges that pushed them beyond their limits as they crossed six continents and thirty-five countries while battling against unforgiving landscapes, extreme weather, civil unrest, and near-death illnesses. Remarkably, they survived it all. At the heart of their journey is a love story – a relationship of two people who believed in achieving the impossible.
This is Serge Roetheli’s personal account of how he and his wife Nicole embarked on their epic “Run for Kids” in February 2000 to help children in developing countries. After 25,422 miles and 63 months later on May 7, 2005, Serge had averaged a marathon every other day, drank over 6 tons of Coca-Cola and wore out 64 pairs of shoes. There are fascinating stories of the children Serge and Nicole met in jails, orphanages they visited, poverty and snakes they encountered, coupe attempts and malaria that they survived, continuing on with broken bones, running the Sahara Desert, surviving running in hurricanes, plus a very humorous and unforgettable experience with cabbies in New York City.
