This summer on the 6th of June I will be participating in an event called Alpe d’HuZes. #ad6
Alpe d’HuZes wants to raise funds to fight cancer by cycling up the Alpe d’Huez. The ultimate goal is to do this six times in one day.
The name, Alpe d’Huzes, is a combination of the Dutch word for “six” and the name of the French mountain.
Everyone can decide for him / herself how many times they want to climb the mountain, my aim is to do this 3 times.

Cancer is everywhere. Fighting it seems pointless. One in three Dutch people develop cancer.
Everyone involved has firsthand experience of how dramatically their lives are affected and how destructive it can be.
My personal drive to participate, is my father who died of brain cancer two years ago.

Alpe d’HuZes was created with the aim to empower people to convert the sense of powerlessness, caused by cancer, into one of strength.
Alpe d’HuZes is founded on the absolute belief that you can attain the greatest possible satisfaction if you put your heart and soul into helping others.
In memory of those who died too young of cancer and to inspire those who are fighting it.

100% of the funds raised go directly to KWF, The Dutch Cancer Society, which finances cancer research and information, prevention and patient support programs.
If you would like to support me I would really appreciate it, i’m happy with any amount. If you make a donation via PayPal I will make sure the money will get to Alpe d’HuZes.
