Our new member Eric van Beek will give an outline of his experience gained by initiating and organizing the SingelSwim in Utrecht. The SingelSwim team raised over 360.000 EUR in 3 years. The money is used for stemcell research done at the Hubrecht Institute in order to help finding a cure for a disease called FSHD. “I think I have some cool ideas to pump up the donations for the club.” according to Eric.
