STOX is commited to the Dutch Cancer Society since this year. We are looking for 75 runners with whom we collect a total amount of € 50.000,- on May 27 for scientific research on cancer. Because we believe that nobody should die from the consequences of this disease.
1 out of 3 people get cancer in The Netherlands. Every year, 45 thousand people die because of this. The disease is the number one cause of death in The Netherlands. That means every 5 minutes a diagnosis and every hour several loved ones die of cancer. That really is a huge pace. To slow down this rate at which cancer affects our lives, research is needed. Let's collect as much money as possible for that research! (source: The Dutch Cancer Society)
Just like the Dutch Cancer Society, we believe the day that nobody dies of cancer exists. But a lot of scientific research is still needed and that research is costly. Together with the Dutch Cancer Society you can help to raise money for this research. You run your own race, but still together. How?
As we already indicated, we have set the goal of collecting a total amount of € 50.000,- together with 75 runners. Of course, we will not leave you to your fate. The Dutch Cancer Society offers you a running schedule (from beginner to advanced). Running experts, nutritionists, coaches and supporters ensure that you reach that finish line at the 10km, half or full Leiden Marathon. In addition to a crazy running experience you become a member of a close community where everyone has his or her own reason to run with Team STOX for the Dutch Cancer Society. There are nice meetings, tips and goodies waiting for you. Do you grab a spot in our team? Because you know it's true, running together is much more fun!
