She’s an athlete, practising psychotherapist, fitness inspiration and international Tower Runner. He’s World #2 and Asia #1 Tower Runner. She wants to do her bit to make a difference during this unparalleled crisis, and he’s made his way to the top with a lot of help, and now wants to give back.
On their own, they’ve run marathon equivalents vertically, climbing the world’s tallest skyscrapers, sometimes for a place on the podium and other times for a cause worthy of emulation. On May 15, 2020, they will run a very special race.
Meet global elite Tower Runners and champion athletes, Gretta Beckett of Ireland and Wai Ching of Malaysia. Headliners at the Burj Khalifa Virtual Climb – a virtual charity challenge organised by Gulf for Good – Gretta and Wai Ching are running to raise funds for 2,000 underprivileged children in Nepal, Uganda, Peru, Tanzania, and Lebanon during the COVID-19 crisis.
Catch them in a cheerful chat, talking about their inspirations to take up the challenge, how they’re positively negotiating the lockdown, their thoughts on the Deetox app and little gems like a new discovery Gretta made about herself and what Wai Ching is watching on YouTube these days!
Thank you, Gretta and Wai! Deetox will cheer you all the way to the top.
