Runners raise over 8500 euro for Health[e]Foundation

For the second year around Health[e]Foundation participated in the Dam tot Damloop, one of the biggest running events in the world. This time 50 motivated runners helped us raise over €8500 for the Community[e]Education training projects. Along the way, the runners were encouraged by 250,000 spectators and dozens of live music performances, that guaranteed a unique and lively atmosphere.

With donations from their friends, family or a company the runners raised money in the months preceding the event. Health[e]Foundation is very pleased with the outcome of over €8500 raised and would like to thank all the runners and people donating to our cause. The money will go to our Community[e]Education training projects. Also a big thank you to our sponsors: Albert Heijn to go, Fruitful office and Uber for their in kind donations to the event. Finally, congratulations to:

  • Best runner women: Anne Hillebrand (1:18:07)
  • Best runner men: Ward van Bilsen (1:17:04)
  • Runner who raised most funds: Brigit Collard (€661)
