Dear friends and family,

On the 4th of November I'm going to run my first marathon, in New York City. I've trained hard, made all the necessary preparations. All that's left is to run and finish...

I would like to dedicate this challenge to my childhood friend Meta. After a battle of many years she finally lost against cancer on the 13th of November 2015. In her words: Life is not fair!

During her illness Meta has been treated by very dedicated doctors of The Netherlands Cancer Institute (the Antoni van Leeuwenhoek ziekenhuis  in Amsterdam). With my marathon run I want to raise money to help the hospital to do more research to fight this horrible disease. Please donate! Even a small amount can make a difference!

Thank you in advance!
