Memo board ZUIDAS RUN RAISES ¤26,000 The runners taking part in this year’s Zuidas Run (four and 10 miles) raised money for the VUmc Cancer Center Amsterdam’s ‘Fit despite cancer’ campaign, as they did last year. The campaign is a keep-fit programme that focuses on maintaining muscle strength and a healthy condition in people with cancer. This helps them to remain physically and mentally strong despite the heavy medication they are often given. The children’s Skon Kids Run was in aid of Stichting Semmy, a foundation which works towards preventing brain stem cell cancer in children. In total, the runs raised ¤26,000 for good causes.
