Sixteen employees of our FNWI group have taken on the challenge to run, bike or hike up the mountain Alpe d’Huez as many times as possible on 4 June 2020, to raise as funding for cancer research.

Cancer is the leading cause of death in the Netherlands indicating that scientific research into cancer is still desperately needed. Many members of RIMLS are somehow involved in cancer research and are highly motivated for this physical challenge to raise money for cancer research. The two teams, the Orbitrappers and the Orbistappers, aim at 40 climbs of Alpe d’Huez in order to raise at least 40,000 euro for cancer research.

Do you want to help them reach their goals by a financial donations, then have a look at Orbistappers and Orbitrappers.
