“The seventh marathon is over! For the first time, I am speechless,” said Kristijan for Slobodna Dalmacija, who was greeted on the waterfront in Tivat by many friends and all those who wanted to express their support and congratulate him on this incredible feat.

Accompanied by a group of runners full of energy, Sindik set off from Čilipi to Tivat Wednesday morning, despite the relentless rain that followed them for 42 kilometers, even stronger than the day before when they ran from Orašac to Dubrovnik to Čilipi.

Friends from Montenegro greeted them at the border crossing, with whom they continued the seventh marathon to the final finish.

“Thank you all! The action lasts until March 1! Many donations came from 15 countries around the world, including Croatia, the USA, Russia, and Turkey. The corona topic has burdened us for a year, and one such issue is unnecessarily marginalized.

So you have the opportunity to do a great thing and donate 100 kuna for children in oncology. I’ve been through this, I know what that means, and I know how much outside help means,” Sindik said. 

“They ask me if it was difficult. On the way, we were followed by rain, today all day. The water was up to my knees! The right path is always difficult. I went that way,” Kristijan said, inviting all people of goodwill to donate 100 kuna or 15 euros to the KBC Split Department of Pediatric Oncology. 

“This is equal to 3 packs of cigarettes, three drinks at a cafe,” he emphasized.

He did not forget to thank his entire team that followed him on the journey and Richard Kuhar, ultramarathoner, and Ante Bebić, the triathlon coach who ran all seven marathons with him.

Many others joined Kristijan along the way, all motivated by the act of helping others. Those interested in donating to KBC Split can do so here: HR1424070003106794371.
