Together against cancer - because we all know somebody who lost the fight -

Getting the diagnosis of cancer does not automatically mean anymore that you will die, like it used to be. In 70 years time the 5-year survival numbers have gone up from 25% to 65%. This means that 65% of people who got cancer still lived 5 years after the diagnosis. 

So numbers have improved significantly, but could improve even more if we invest in development of more treatments, and more precise treatments. 

This event "groot verzet tegen kanker" (resistance against cancer) is to raise money for research. On September 1st a group will wakl/jog up the mountain, on September 2nd a group will bike. If you see my pictures, you'll notice I'm on a bike - I did bike up this mountain in 2011 - but this time I will walk up :)

because we all want to grow the number of people who win the fight !

March - how am I going to train for this ?

How am I going to train walking up the mountain - Netherlands is so flat .... no mountains here !  :)  But we do have dunes and some hills in the south ...  Okay, here is my plan - to get into shape and to strengthen endurance and legs - I'll start jogging again. I play golf, so walking a few hours is already no problem, and jogging will increase general condition. Watch this space for an update next month !
