Hoek tot Helder

Hoek tot Helder

Main aim of the charity

The main aim is to raise as much money for the dutch heart foundation (hartstichting) by doing this 130km downwinder. This will take me at least 7 hours to do and a lot of preparation to get ready for it.

How the employee got involved and why

2 years ago i got some kitesurf lessions at Scheveningen. After this i got hooked on kitesurfing and now every time there is wind you can find me at sea. 3 friends and me came up with the idea to join up for the 'Hoek tot Helder'-charity downwinder. This is a 130 km downwinder along the dutch coast, from Hoek van Holland to Den Helder, to raise money for the 'hart-stichting'.

What work does the employee do for charity?

Kite surfing

What impact would winning have on the charity?

i now got 300 euros raised for this cause, but i need at least 750 euros to complete my fundraising for this good cause. It's going to be a very tough journey and i'm training hard to make this real.

What impact would winning have on the employee?

If i win i would be so happy and greatful! The more money raised for this cause, the better. It's all for research for heartdiseases
