Having a disabled brother, Kelly believes that this relay would represent a significant life experience and a personal achievement. She sees the possibility of running for him and for all those who cannot do it as a great honour. This year, she has set up, together with her university, the project "Creating a humanitarian association". She did a feasibility study with her group on establishing an association called "Les Petits Crayons" ("Little Pencils") to facilitate children's access to education in the In Salah town in Algeria. Their ambition is to fill the municipal library (which is currently empty) with books written in French.
