To draw the attention to cancer. If I can touch people’s hearts, I can make them donate money. I am on the 250th kilometre of my trekking activity, which I had planned to take nearly 40 days. I am heading towards İzmir. I plan to arrive in Istanbul after Manisa, Balıkesir, Bursa and Yalova.”
Aslan said he started trekking on his own and he did not accommodate in any hotel or house: “I have my tent and other supplies for trekking. I am carrying 23 kg load. I am cooking myself. I am setting my tent in proper places. Some of my friends are walking with me for moral support for a few kilometres. Then I carry on by myself. I am going to finish this trekking to raise awareness on leukaemia.”
