Running events are usually also organised to support good causes. Marathon Eindhoven powered by ASML has played a major role in doing so for many years now. In 2018, Jeugdsportfonds Eindhoven and KWF are the charities of Marathon Eindhoven powered by ASML.
Jeugdsportfonds creates opportunities for children between the ages of 4 and 18 who come from families that are living on minimum wages, to train at official sports clubs. Thanks to Jeugdsportfonds these children are given the chance to follow their dream in sports. No child should be kept from being able to participate in sports. Therefore, for children whose parents cannot afford to, Jeugdsportfonds pays their contribution fees. This is how Jeugdsportfonds literally keeps children moving.
One in nine children in the Netherlands lives in poverty. In Eindhoven, over 6.000 children can't participate in any sports activity and their lives are literally at a standstill because of this social isolation.Donate now
