Support Hêbê Cool Runner Flavio Conti

My name is Flavio Conti, I’m 35 years old, I’m a policy Officer at European Commission, Directorate General for Agriculture and Rural Development and I’ve been living in Brussels since 2008
A bit more about myself: Since summer 2016 I am the lucky and proud daddy of a beautiful little girl called Giulia who changed my world and I am looking forward to have her running with me soon, side by side.

1) What’s your favourite park to run in Brussels and why? 
Bois de la Cambre is my favourite park to run in Brussels. It is a perfect mix of flat and hilly tracks with beautiful trees and fresh air. I love running around the lakes, I have spent so much time running there that each time I go, it feels like being back at home.

2) What’s your motivation when your legs hurt to continue training?
The feeling of being capable of going beyond your own limits: it’s priceless and it generates adrenalines that move through your veins afterwards for the rest of the day and it just makes you feel good.

3) What’s needed to have a thriving social community in a city (such as Hêbê)?
 Civic sense, social engagement, commitment, the feeling of being part of a community of people, respect towards the others , for their different points of view and different cultures, common values and public opportunities to share experiences and knowledge.

4) Why have you decided to run for the Red Cross?
To help the people in need, assisted every day by the Red Cross, around the globe.


I’ll run 20km in Brussels on 28 May and I need your support for the Red Cross activities: http://20km.redcross.be/projects/hebe-cool-runnings-goes-red
