MHU at Levensloop Genk – 14 & 15 October 2017
During 24 consecutive hours many friends, families and cancer fighters walked and ran to support people with cancers or to honour the ones they’ve lost. A total of 128 teams counting of 6724 participants were committed to finish and raise money for the Stichting Tegen Kanker fund. All teams together raised an overwhelming amount of € 270296!
Prior to and during the weekend all sorts activities (e.g. bake sales) were organized to raise this amount of money. To add something extra during the weekend, MHU monitored 5 teams for the entire 24 hours. MHU equipped the teams with a smartwatch and a smartphone to track their heart rate, current location, speed and distance. These parameters were monitored per runner per team, and also for the entire team, giving a nice overview of the total distance they ran or walked during those 24 hours. The 5 teams MHU monitored walked/ran over 625 km during the 24 hours, a distance that describes the great enthusiasm the teams had to finish.
This day was a success thanks to the support of Stichting Tegen Kanker, BHIC and Wara Genk. Additionally, we would like to thank the teams: Team Carlucci-Mertens & vrienden, Sledderlo Runners, IncuRunners, Hemodialyse ZOL and Kinepraktijk Grossard for their strong effort and their persistence.
