GloriaNasrGloria Nasr starts today the 10th week in her journey running back home from Paris to Beirut.

She already traveled through France, Germany, Austria, Hungary and Romania. Now she is heading to Melnitsa, her last step in Bulgaria.

On the 7th of April, Gloria, a sports doctor and a Lebanese athlete living in Paris, started a Run for Peace starting from the Champs Elysees in Paris and expected to reach Beirut beginning August, estimating to have run by then 5,000 km and passed by 9 countries.

Back in February, we published an interview with her in here.

Running for peace with a strong determination, she defied obstacle after the other. She worked on new detours to avoid unsafe areas in Syria, and she got a personal loan to finance her challenge, after to after failing to find a sponsor.

Gloria is doing a one-of-a-kind challenge that we should all be proud of! Why not drop her a word of encouragement on her Facebook page?

Go Gloria, we’re all supporting you and will be waiting for you soon in Lebanon!
