You could leave life right now. Let that determine what you do and say and think.
“Hello my name is Rafael and I am 21 years old. I have always dreamed of running a marathon, but I never had the courage to do it. Until now.
This year I have decided to run the New York City Marathon on the 3rd November 2024 with my older brother Bastiaan and my father Rob. Therefore, this would be a memorable memory for us, as it would be my first full Marathon for me and my brother as well as the first Marathon for my father, after his injury and pulmonary embolism attack. As a result, we have decided to raise money for a personal and meaningful purpose: cancer.
Cancer has taken away two of my aunts Brigitte and Caroline and my grandmother Thea suffered it as well before she died.
Therefore, I want to honour their memory and also the close people in my environment and their families, that have lost and especially are currently suffering with the terrible disease, to try and make an humanitarianism and prosocial behaviour. For those reasons, I joined the charitable organisation Run for Life Team 2024 and KWF Kankerbestrijding to make a difference in the lives of the persons around us and the millions others!
But we can’t do it alone.
Together, we can beat cancer!
Thank you for your generosity and kindness. You are the best!”
