Running the Ronde van Aruba for Fundacion Zinnia

Around  four years ago the daughter of my cousin died due to  a car accident by a drunk driver. My cousin and his wife have founded Fundacion Zinnia in honor of their daughter.  The foundation has created a  "Don't drink and drive" awareness program on the island of Aruba called "Amigodidi" and they also help families who lost their children by non-natural causes like traffic accidents.

I am going to run "De ronde van Aruba" in May 2019 with an all-family group, which include a cousin, her husband, the brother of Zinnia, and myself. We will each run roughly 18km in of the 73km long parcour. 

The money raised by this campaign will go the Fundacion Zinnia to help them to continue the #amigodidi campaign with commercials and other marketing material such as promotional goodies.

Half of the money raised will go towards my airplane ticket (from Amsterdam) to Aruba (roughly €500). If more than € 1000 is raised, the full ticket is funded and all remaining funds are then redirected to Fundacion Zinnia.

Because Fundacion Zinnia is founded by my cousin I'm working directly with them. You can get more information on their facebook page .
