Climbing to the sky for cancer research


A total of 19 colleagues of DEMCON participated in Alpe d’HuZes, a Dutch charity event last week.
Alpe d’HuZes, is a unique annual sporting event where as much money as possible is raised for cancer research and for improving the quality of life of people with cancer.
On a single day, 5000 participants bike, hike or run the Alpe d’Huez.

On this mountain in the French Alps, best known for the Tour de France cycling event, participants attempt a maximum of six climbs to the top, under the motto ‘giving up is not an option’.
Among them were 3 members of the Macawi team, Ben van den Elshout; John Vissers and Patrick Kleuskens.

Together our colleagues raised over 65.000 euros during this event.
In total a record amount of 17.022.738 euro was raised this year.
Every euro donated to the Alpe d’HuZes goes directly and for the full 100% to cancer research.
