2012 - Riding Alpe d'HuZes

End of 2011 I decided to participate in the chartity Ride Alpe d'HuZes. Alpe d’HuZes is an event in which participants raise as much funds as possible to contribute to the fight against cancer. They do this by running, walking or cycling up the legendary French Alpe d’Huez up to six times in one day. Their credo? "Quitting is not an option." All funds raised are used for cancer research, with the ultimate aim of controlling the disease. The participants hope that in the future, no-one will have to die after being diagnosed with cancer.

After seeing half of my family having to fight Cancer I decided to participate together with best friend, who was recovering from cancer. Riding up the mountain together with him was and still is one of the most impressing moments of my life!
