Run for KiKa – World Marathon Majors

My goal since 2011 was to run all the 6 World Marathon Majors and raise over € 100.000,- for KiKa, a Dutch foundation dedicated to childhood cancer research. Seven years later I became a proud Six Star Finisher of all the World Marathon Majors. I ran Spijkenisse, New York, London, Berlin, Tokyo, Chicago and the Boston Marathon and raised € 104.672,-.

De Boston Marathon – “You got this!”
On Monday April 16th, 2018 I ran the Boston Marathon. It was a marathon that I for always will remember due the weather: it was cold an I enjoyed over 2 inches of rain and strong headwinds. Read my Boston Marathon Race report. Soaked to the bone I finished in Boston on 3:60. My total amount raised for KiKa was € 104.672,- to support KiKa’s search into a pediatric cancer cure. Thanks for all your support!

New York Marathon
On November 3rd 2013 I ran the New York City Marathon and finished with a big smile on my face in Central Park. It was an incredible experience to run these 42 kilometres / 26 miles, I’ll never forget it. I felt – and still feel – like a world champion because of the 2 million cheering fans along the streets shouting: “Go Ramone”. My total amount raised for KiKa was € 34.309,- EUR.

Journey for KiKa
I started this journey at the end of 2011, my goal was to train and run – my first – marathon in 2012 and to raise funds for KiKa. In 2012 the marathon was cancelled because of the aftermath of hurricane Sandy. I had raised € 15.055,- EUR. I decided to continue my training and fund raising efforts and run the New York marathon a year later.

At the moment, 25% of the children diagnosed with cancer do not survive.

KiKa’s goal is to reduce that to 5% in 2025.

In order to achieve this goal, heavy investment in pediatric research is needed. 

I would like to thank to all of you who have donated and supported / encouraged me face-to-face, via e-mails, tweets, App’s, text’s messages, shout-out during training.  A special thanks to my wife & daughters, my family and all the friends who supported me to achieve my goal! Could not have done without you! THANKS!

Take a look at who donated.
