By doing the half marathon Femke and Marieke wanted to collect money to donate to the "Antoni van Leeuwenhoek" hospital. The money will be spent on research on melanoma.
This research is conducted by the professor who was responsible for
treating Annemieke in the last month of her life. In my conversations
with him, I found him very enthusiastic about his research and het
really hated it, that he could do nothing for her, though the current
state of his research looked very promising.
Femke and Marieke did their best to help along that research in their
way, so that one day, we will not lose any friends and family, to this
Their target was to collect at least 3000 euros. They not only
succeeded in reaching that target, but they even surpassed by 17%!
On behalf of all victims of this terrible disease; Thank you very much!
