RTV Stichtse Vecht – Nyenrode studs raise money for swimming with a fun move

A team of 20 students from Nyenrode Business University from Breukelen signed up together for the Swim to Fight Cancer Stichtse Vecht on August 28 and came up with a brilliant fundraising idea. By sponsoring and printing their blue bathrobes, Nyenrode Studs wants to raise at least €10,000 for cancer research.

The student team set itself the goal of raising €10,000 for cancer research. That’s why they came up with a unique way to raise money. They took over 20 bathrobes from the swimming game to fight the ancient stock of cancer. Now they are looking for sponsors who want to put their name or logo on the back of their bathrobe for €200 per logo. 100% of the proceeds go to swimming to fight cancer. The team has already convinced a number of sponsors, but is still looking for several sponsors. This summer they are trying to get companies in and out of Stichtse Vecht excited about the sponsorship campaign.

Luke Yunk, one of the team’s initiators, says that when the swimming organization came to Nyenrod Business University to invite people to participate, a large group was immediately excited. The team consists of undergraduate and master’s students from Nyenrode.

To start a good swim preparation, they find a professional coach willing to train the group. Locke: “Because we have Nyenrode in Vecht, that’s standard for all of our showers, but now we want to train professionally a few times with each other.”

Cancer Control, a subsidiary of KWF, has been organizing recreational swimming events in inland waters for cities large and small in the Netherlands for years. This year, 13 cities will swim to fight cancer. With this said, Cancer Control hopes to raise as much funding as possible for scientific research via KWF Kankerbestrijding. Cancer Control chooses to support talented young researchers and clinicians. Through donations, they can gain knowledge and skills in the field of Oncology at the highest level. In 2018, the event was held for the first time inside the Stichtse Vecht, and 450 participants took part in the battle to raise as much money as possible for cancer research. In 2019, we greatly expanded the number of participants, and there were 550 adults and 200 juniors who went the distance in the water.
