Support this fundraiser by connecting a new fundraiser to it. All donations will be assigned to the top level fundraiser.

This year I'll be running two races for the Alzheimer Center VUmc in Amsterdam. First I’ll be running 16k in September at the Dam to Damloop in Amsterdam and the bigger Detroit Half Marathon in October. These are both huge challenges for me and I’ve already started with the preparation and training.

Alzheimer's is the most common form of dementia that increasingly affects younger people. The VUmc Alzheimer Center is one of four such specialist centers in the Netherlands and particularly focuses on people who have Alzheimer’s at a younger age. This center researches methods of early detection, an important factor in treating the disease.

Without research there will be no solution for Alzheimer's and the development of treatments costs a lot of time and money. Therefore please donate; all money raised will go to the Alzheimer Center VUmc in Amsterdam.

Every little helps! :D
