Close the leak!


On December 20, 4 friends, including Aart, Emilie’s son, cycled from Groningen to America in 16.5 hours to collect money for Emilie. At 1 am they arrived in America.

On January 13 the final amount of the sponsored bike ride, almost €25.000, was transferred to the Lichtgevend Foundation. With this amount the percentage of the total amount needed increased from 13 to 30%.
