As some of you know, I like to cycle. Typically putting in 2 to 3 ride a week as it does the fun, fit, social, etc. things for me. As some of you also know, we have two kids running around here who are fit, energetic, lively, playfull, happy and all over the place. Yes, we're a lucky bunch.
The Dutch Charity org "Spieren voor Spieren" exists for children in The Netherlands with rare muscle deseases. Those who would love to be fit and run around like mine. But simply can't due to their illness and use all their energy to get the (for us) simple stuff done. Yeah, life is not fair, I know. So, they deserve our attention and support, and I call on you my friends.
We all know Charities need societal (individual) financial support. So they can fund the R&D and improvements for curing and caring. Dairy giant FrieslandCampina (my wife's firm) is supporting this Charity and together they have set up a fund raise contest in which may famous and not-so-famous folks participate. One goal - to raise as much cash as possible for the great cause.
I felt triggered and challenged to do what I am already doing, leverage it for this cause, and push myself to do a bit more once people are upping their generousity ;-). This is your chance to really put me at work :-)
So I call on my network to donate for these children, and please be very generous.
In return, I am committing to put in as much km's (miles) as I reasonably can to keep up with the amounts funded - a km for a euro. So far, unfortunatly, I was easily able to do so and I am ahead of it..this should change in my view. Yes, I have a job and family, but rest asurred, if you challenge me I will bring what I have to the table!
Long stop date is end of June. This gives us ~50 days to create an impresive amount raised for these kids. Will you join me/us? Thank you.
Good learnings for next longest day ride on the equipment and time management. Start 4am on, 9:45pm off the bike, 2hr mechanical delay (IJsselstein from 7am killing time until 9am opening of local bike shop, one new flat tire around 9:30, and then no issues until both Wahoo Element Bold and I-phone both died just before Driel - ~80kms before home).
Breng deze pagina extra onder de aandacht met een gave poster. Je kunt zelf de tekst bepalen en de poster vervolgens printen en overal ophangen.
