More than 1,500 meters of swimming in open water for charity ... a total of 258 people participated in the first edition of Swim to Fight Cancer Nijmegen. On behalf of Synthon, 21 colleagues took up the challenge.
The swim was a success not only in terms of sports - all Synthon participants managed to swim the whole distance - but also in the amount of money raised. The five teams together managed to raise EUR 4,860!
Added to the EUR 4,000 sponsored by Synthon, the total amount of our participation is EUR 8,860. The money goes through KWF Kankerbestrijding* to scientific cancer research carried out by young talented researchers, and prevention.
