KWF (Dutch Cancer Society) is partner of Marathon Eindhoven. 1 in 3 Dutch people gets cancer. Every year, 45 thousand people die because of cancer. That means that every 5 minutes someone is diagnosed with this disease. The same time to run about 1 kilometer. Marathon Eindhoven gives all participants the opportunity to donate to KWF during their registration. You can also sponsor your participation on the KWF platform. You can do that individually, but also as a team. With your participation and sponsoring you support cancer research.

Your race makes a difference
Cancer affects us all. One in three people in Holland will develop cancer during their lifetime. Thanks to scientific research more and more people survive the disease. However, 45.000 people still die from the effects of the disease each year. We need money for scientific research, and this is where you can make a difference.
