On September the 14th (2014) the ‘Swim to Fight Cancer’ was held for the first time. Participants collected on forehand as much money as possible and on the 14th, they jumped in the channels of Den Bosch to swim 2km. This event connects two worlds (being ill because of cancer and open water swimming), which were (and still are) a part of Maartens life.
Swim to Fight Cancer
Maarten is the ambassador of ‘Swim to Fight Cancer’ (an initiation of ‘Fight Cancer’) and swam 2km in the channels of Den Bosch. Main goal of this event is to collect as much money as possible for KWF Kankerbestrijding (the Dutch Cancer Foundation).
