The Alpe D’HuZes challenge has been completed
Last Thursday I cycled Alpe D’Huez mountain together with more than 1000 other riders to raise money on behalf of the Alpe D’HuZes (“Alpe 6 Times”) foundation for the Dutch Cancer Society to fund cancer rehabilitation research.
I took on the mountain 6 times that day; some went as far as 9 times I heard…
The foundation raised more than 5 million Euros with the event. This enables the funding of a comprehensive cancer rehabilitation research program called A-Care, and the establishment of an endowed chair at the VU University’s faculty of psychology and education and the EMGO Institute for Health and Care Research on psychosocial support for cancer patients.
