DHL SPL's Make-A-Wish sponsoring

Hi All,
First of all I would like to thank the people who supported us as they look invisible. They were there for us all the time to provide us with food and drinks but also a friendly face at each stop, strong words when we only saw dark clouds and even to walk aside when we needed. Without them on 888 nothing would have been possible!
Secondly I would like to thank each of you who participate to my dream and help me to let it become true. I think you can be proud of yourself. You can tell the people around you that thanks to your contribution on this hard but fantastic journey, we were able to gather 11785 for Make a Wish! I hope you enjoyed it as much as I did.
As last, it was a great pleasure and honor for me to lead this project to a overwhelming success. Before I close this message, I would like to thank 2 people specially: Neil who brought me the inspiration to achieve this and Eddy that even after leading us through this experiment, takes us back to the best moments of it via this website.

High regards,

Marc Steffens
