November 28th, 2017 – “The adventure of fundraising with the Singelswim Utrecht”

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.
