“My name is Freek van Haarlem and this year on November 6th I will take up a New York challenge and run the New York City Marathon to raise money for cancer research! With a motivated team, the Run for Life foundation raises as much money as possible for KWF Kankerbestrijding by running the NYC marathon every year. A great opportunity to do something for others, whilst going on a trip and getting in shape!
Running is definitely a hobby of mine, but after several half marathons it feels time for the real deal. I want to tie that big goal to a big cause. Unfortunately, like most, more and more people around me get cancer, but I really don’t want to continue dealing with that in the future. With the right research and drug development we really can beat cancer, so my team and I want to raise as much money as possible to accelerate that process. So do your bit by donating; I’ll run the marathon!!”
