In 2018, a good friend of mine put on a massive goal on himself to participate and finish some of the biggest marathons. Now this is impressive enough, but Bob did it for charity as part of his own Expedition Bobinson.
In 2015, family friend Bob was admitted to hospital for the fifth time, within six months. With the diagnosis of double burnout, he worked hard on his recovery. One of the things that helped him improve was running.
Earlier this year, he ran his first marathon. The Great Wall of China marathon for charity organization KiKa was a big adventure. As part of his own Expedition Bobinson he set the goal to finish all the Abott World Marathons before 2020.
When he asked me if I wanted to design the logo, it was an obvious yes. I created the logo and was more than happy to contribute to this massive challenge!
