The Story of IPA Romania’s Record-Breaking Iulian Rotaru

23 Mar 2022


The story of our colleague, Iulian Rotaru, a member of the IPA Region 1 Botosani, began 12 years ago, when he started running around the hospital where his boy was hospitalised, thus trying to get rid of the stress of that moment.ROIulian2

Later, this hobby acquired other values, and Iulian thought of adding an aim to the competitions in which he started to participate. Thus, he dedicated the victories obtained to an association for children with autism spectrum disorders.

One by one, due to his ambition, the results started to appear, and Iulian won competition after competition.

It is all the more important, because the competitions in which Iulian participates take place in extremely difficult conditions and require a colossal effort.

During the period of 24 – 28 January 2022, Iulian participated in Lapland – Finland, where he managed to win again, but more than that, to break a record.

It is a very beautiful life story, from which we can all learn to understand that limits are imposed only by us, that it is never too late to find your own way but also, that the noblest achievement of all, is to offer to those with a harder fate.

Congratulations, Iulian, for the way you demonstrate day by day what ‘SERVO PER AMIKECO’ means!

Mihai-Liviu Tărtăreanu, President IPA Romania
