In this episode I chat with Dmitri about a challenge that he undertook in 2020 to run along all the rivers in Tokyo.
We get to know Dmitri, what inspired him to take on this challenge and lessons he learnt along the way.
Dmitri's final river run of the Tamagawa from the sea to the border of Tokyo was dedicated to Team Taira and the efforts of RunDIPG. Diffuse intrinsic pontine glioma (DIPG) is a rare type of brain cancer in the pons, which currently has no cure. It is primarily diagnosed in children, and with no formal treatment patients are given a survival prognosis of 9-10 months. This disease tragically took the life of Taira, the 3 year old son of his very close friend. RunDIPG is a charity funding DIPG research around the world. Please consider donating to help them in their mission to find a cure for this terrible disease that affects 2000 children worldwide each year.
