SMS-oncology takes part in Ride for the Roses
9 September 2016, Lindy Bosch, Business Developer
Congratulations to "De vier Ds" team, our SMS-oncology colleagues Nadina, Philine, Fleur, Stephan, Miraj, Julia and Yuka, for taking part in the Ride for the Roses on Sunday 4th September to help raise money for cancer research, awareness and patient care.
The Ride for the Roses is an annual cycling event that has become a household name in the Netherlands. The success of the Ride for the Roses is in its unique formula: 10,000 cyclists are engaged in making a stand against cancer in a sporty, healthy and fun way by raising money for the Dutch Cancer Society. Everyone who gets to the finish line receives a rose that symbolizes a tomorrow for everyone.
Not put-off by the rain and thunder all morning, the SMS-oncology team took part and completed the 50 km cycle ride. They started just after 11:00 am at the Twente Airport and followed a route around the beautiful Twente countryside before ending back again at the airport. They are still not letting us know how long it took them to complete the ride but it certainly sounds like they enjoyed themselves, and raised over €1200; so very well done to them!
A total amount of €585.000 was raised.
