Sponsor event ”lijn in water loop in lelystad”

On Sunday the 10th of June 2012, eleven teams of men and women, completed a sponsor run of 53 km, alternatively cycling or running. The parcours was on the coast of Flevopolder, between Lelystad and Almere, around the Oostvaarders plassen. Every participant had been lobbying for sponsors amongst his/her families and friends to support him for this event. The total amount was destined for a good purpose, in this case the Arrakis project Water & Sanitation for 4 villages in Mozambique was selected. The event was held for the tenth time and the weather was good and spirits were high. The organization was in hands of HKV Lijn in Water, the advice bureau in water, based in Lelystad, in cooperation with sports club Spirit. At the end of the day, a checque of € 4500,- was handed to Sjef Ernes, director of Aqua for All which is a very good result of this sportive and nice day. It will be added to the fund of the project which has come herewith closer to realization. In name of the people of the 4 villages in Meluco, we thank everybody who worked for this fine result. We hope also that it will stimulate others to contribute to this project for which a total amount of € 40,000.- is required.
