Run4TeamHepB Runner Spotlight: Axel Tismer
Run4TeamHepB Runners Spotlight – AXEL TISMER
One month to go! Our Run4TeamHepB is inching closer to the finish line as they continue to raise funds and pound the pavement while training for the TCS New York City Marathon on Nov. 6!
We’ve been highlighting each one of our dedicated runners so you can meet the team and join them raising awareness and funds for those living with Hep B. Feel free to share these posts to help get the word out!
- Who: Axel Tismer
- What: Our only international team member seeking his first U.S. medal
- Where: Resides in London
- When: Nov. 6 for the 51st running of the NYC marathon
- Why: Axel says “I have started running more seriously in the last 3 years and I ran my first ever race last year, completing the Paris Marathon. I’m running the NYC Marathon this year in support of the Hep B Foundation because somebody in my family was affected by liver disease in the past and I would like to help raise awareness and funds for prevention and treatment.”
We say …it’s never too late to start! The Hep B Foundation and the 2 billion ppl living with the disease worldwide thank you for joining our cause.
