The NN Marathon Rotterdam is the most beautiful marathon of the Netherlands, already for 40 years. Every year, tens of thousands people from all over the world participate. And each year, the NN Marathon Rotterdam supports a charity. This anniversary year the NN Marathon Rotterdam has chosen to support The Dutch Cancer Society (KWF Kankerbestrijding).
The organisation asks all participants to contribute to revolutionary cancer research in the Erasmus UMC. Run the extra mile and get into action. Run against cancer and for life. The most beautiful breakthroughs we’ll achieve together.
Cancer affects us all. One in three people in Holland will develop cancer during their lifetime. Thanks to scientific research more and more people survive the disease. However, 45.500 people still die from the effects of the disease each year. We need money for scientific research, and this is where you can make a difference.
Do you want to make a difference in cancer research? Create your own fundraiser page. There is no minimum amount of sponsor money we ask you to raise. Do you raise more than 500 euro? You will receive the unique Run against cancer – shirt. Of course KWF will help you with raising money by providing tips, tricks and examples of other fundraisers.
We would like to celebrate our anniversary edition in the grand and festive way for which we are known worldwide. The chance that the event can take place safely is much greater in October than in April. Public health always comes first. Every individually registered runner will be able to keep their place in the rescheduled event as previously communicated.Read more
