Walking for a Cause
Arion walked for 24 hours and collected €1.330 for cancer research.
Last weekend, Arion participated in the “SamenLoop voor Hoop” (walk together for hope) event in Sittard-Geleen with a group of 24 employees and family members. SamenLoop voor Hoop is a 24 hour relay in which teams take a long walk together. This relay symbolizes the ongoing fight against cancer. Also the Arion team walked for 24 hours (day and night) and sold Swash to raise money for research related to curing cancer. Michael Barneveld (one of the team members pictured below) even walked 48 kilometers and raised more than €800!
The total amount of €1.330 that we collected will be offered to KWF Kankerbestrijding (Dutch sponsor of research against cancer).

We want to thank everybody, and especially Michael Barneveld, who contributed to this event.
