Daxx supported a volunteer anti-cancer initiative in Netherlands Alpe d’HuZes
by becoming one of the sponsors. Under a motto “Giving up is not an option”, Alpe d’HuZes has been raising funds for the fight against cancer since 2006.
The participants of the event were to climb the legendary Alpe d’Huez on bikes up to 6 times in a day.
“We will go up the mountain Alpe d'Huez (hopefully 2 or 3 times) with the bike. Next year I will climb the Alpe d'Huez at least 2 times with the bike.” says Marco, one of the participants of the event. The purpose of each participant was to raise € 2500,00 from sponsors, and the money raised would be spent on cancer research in all forms. “I, just like everyone I know, have lost people to this disease,” Marco adds. “Now my best friend is fighting a battle against this disease, which feels unreal and dishonest.”
The money raised by the competitors annually goes to the research fund of Alpe d’HuZes and is spent on projects that are believed to yield the most effective results for cancer patients and potential victims of the disease. According to their website, the current donations have reached € 12,351,027. Daxx was honored to contribute to the important matter that the fight against cancer is.
