Last month we, as the organization of the ERM, came into contact with the wonderful initiative: KikaRow. They told us that cancer is still the most common cause of death, due to illness, amongst children. The survival rate of these children can be increased faster by concentrating care, research and education in one location. This will be realized in the Princess Maxima Centre (Utrecht)!
The goal of KikaRow is to raise €500,000! This spring they will start and row 1400km, past 60 rowing clubs, through the Netherlands: ‘Rondje NL’. The start is at Michiel de Ruyter Uithoornse Roei- en Kanovereniging (Uithoorn). In 14 weekends they will row from club to club. What makes this journey special is that the boat is also manned by former child cancer patients (Kika rowers) and/or their family, friends. Rowing clubs throughout the country will teach the Kika rowers how to row under the guidance of experienced rowers!
As the organization of the ERM, we want to commit ourselves this year to this wonderful and valuable initiative. During the ERM (May 31st & June 1st) there will be collectibles to donate so we can contribute together to this great goal!
Help and support this initiative so that all of us can eradicate childhood cancer!
