For those who have not been watching Dutch television in the 90’s: Bart de Graaff was a tv celebrity who died at the age of 35 from severe chronic kidney disease after he had a car accident as a kid.
Colleagues of the Department for Physiology participated to challenge their running skills and collect money for fighting kidney disease. Every participant decided on his/her own start and finish. Personal records and personal boundaries were broken. The Radboud Physiology runners showed to be strong racers, as multiple colleagues appeared in the top 5 of all participants. Special mention should go to Steffi and Lynette who collected a large part of the 400 euros that were gathered by the team.
Congrats to Caro, Lotte, Lynette, Mark, Pieter, Steffi and Daan for their efforts, and hope to see many of you (both Integrative and Molecular Physiology) for the next Kidney foundation sponsor event this year: the Nierdaagse!
