On September the 14th (2014) the ‘Swim to Fight Cancer’ was held for the first time. Participants collected on forehand as much money as possible and on the 14th, they jumped in the channels of Den Bosch to swim 2km. The collection is intended for fellowships: scholarships for young, talented doctors and academics to improve themselves at the highest level in oncology. By getting more insight in cancer, we hope to improve the chances for recovery.
This event connects two worlds (being ill because of cancer and open water swimming), which were (and still are) a part of Maartens life.
The first edition of ‘Swim to Fight Cancer’ resulted in an amount of €519.831,22 and was very successful. In 2015, the ‘Swim to Fight Cancer’ will be held for the 2nd time on September the 13th.
