VHE supports Gilles Vanblarcum in the ‘Run for KiKa Marathon’

On 1 November, Gilles Vanblarcum and an entire team ran the New York City Marathon and made an important sponsoring contribution to the Dutch KiKa (Children Without Cancer) Foundation. VHE is one of the companies sponsoring Gilles. We believe that this beautiful initiative deserves more attention and we mention it here for that reason. You can make your own contribution via the link below.

Gilles’ gratitude is expressed in the letter he sent to our director, Martin Rombout.

Dear Martin,

The fund has now reached €5768 euro (see https://www.runforkikamarathon.nl/gilles-vanblarcum), a terrific feat that your contribution helped make possible. Many, many thanks!
I have now finished running the marathon for the KiKa Foundation and, together with the entire KiKa group, have collected a total of €1,291,094. Currently, 67 projects are financed with this money. One of them is the Princess Máxima Children’s Cancer Centre, which will open in Utrecht in 2017 adjacent to and in collaboration with the Utrecht University Medical Centre, the Wilhelmina Children’s Hospital and the NKI-AVL (Antoni van Leeuwenhoek Cancer Institute). This new centre will inspire and facilitate more scientists in detecting and treating cancer in children.

Thanks once again, also on behalf of KiKa.
Sincerely, Gilles
