Amsterdam City Swim: supporters help defeat ALS!

Light4U celebrated it’s 10th birthday celebration by taking part in the Mystery Roads Challenge. All proceeds went to benefit the ALS Foundation. Last year we conquered Mont Ventoux. And this year we are supporting a special effort from a mother and daughter team in the fight against ALS .

Impressive stories

But first, lets retrace our steps. The Mystery Road Challenge finished with an afterparty, to which all sponsors were invited. The catering was provided by Pitbrothers, run by Ina Meijers and her husband. The evening was also the catalyst for spurring her into doing her bit for Stichting ALS. Ina: “The stories we heard there and the people we met were hugely inspiring. The final push came when I saw Fernando Ricksen – courageous, proud and charming – on television. That’s why we decided to take the plunge –  literally and figuratively!”

Together through the Amsterdam canals

Ina and her daughter Anouk are going to take part in the Amsterdam City Swim. Together, on Sunday 3 September, they will swim 2 kilometres through the Amsterdam canals. The aim? “To collect as much money as possible, of course !”, says Ina. “Quite a challenge. But compared to the difficulties faced every day by people with ALS, it’s a walk in the park. Right now, we are looking for sponsors and donors for this event. Companies will see their names on the bathrobes that we are having printed. We’re very excited about it. And any support we get will only spur us on further!”

Wish to donate?

The Amsterdam City Swim has been going since 2012. In 2016, there were almost three thousand participants, who together collected more than 2 million euros. Money that is obviously extremely welcome to Stichting ALS. We at Light4U are proud sponsors and supporters of Ina and Anouk. If you would like to support them too, you can donate here. You can specify whether you want to donate to either Ina Meijers or Anouk Stulp.  You can also transfer an amount to the special bank account NL86INGB0653917473 in the name of E.J. Meijers, quoting the reference Cityswim. We thank you for your support and wish our swimming heroes the very best of luck!
