Sponsor ride Danny van Vliet for Foundation Spieren voor Spieren 2022
Danny van Vliet will cycle 48 hours non-stop for the foundation Spieren voor Spieren (Muscles for Muscles)
After last year’s success Danny van Vliet will take on a double challenge. Last year he rode 24 hours non-stop for a total of 577 kilometers. This year he will cycle 48 hours non-stop for a charity. The end goal is to ride approximately 1.150 kilometers. Last year in June Danny undertook the challenge to cycle 24 hours non-stop for a charity: the foundation Boodschappenkast Zuidplas (Groceries cupboard Zuidplas). He managed to collect the phenomenal amount of € 50.000 with that sponsor ride. An amazing and unexpected result! He made a lot of people who are unable to provide for their daily needs happy with this
However, anyone who knows Danny can tell you he is always looking for a new challenge. The 24 hours ride last year went fairly well, so….. he wants more! That is why he has decided to cycle 48 hours non-stop! And this time for an even bigger, nationwide charity: the foundation Spieren voor Spieren (Muscles for Muscles).
PURPOSE OF THE 24 HOURS NON-STOP SPONSOR RIDE
With this sponsor ride Danny wants to use his healthy muscles to help sick muscles. He wants to collect sponsor money which will be used to fund more scientific research into the causes and the curing of muscular diseases in children. Because Danny believes that children should be able to run, cycle, play and engage in sports carefree. There are about 20.000 children in The Netherlands who can’t do that because of a muscular disease.
WHAT DOES THE FOUNDATION SPIEREN VOOR SPIEREN (MUSCLES FOR MUSCLES) DO?
Muscles for Muscles want’s to improve the quality of life of children with muscular diseases. To that end the foundation funds centers of expertise where knowledge about the diagnosis, treatment and care of muscular diseases in children is collected. Besides this the foundation provides medical devices to children who are dependent on them. Muscles for Muscles wants to increase awareness of the foundation through education.
WHAT WILL HAPPEN?
Danny van Vliet will cycle for a very long time. He wants to ride as much kilometers as possible on his Colnago racing bike during the 48 hours sponsor ride. His intention is to remain on his bike for 48 hours and his goal is to ride 1.150 kilometers. He will ride laps of approximately 70 kilometers which will take about 2 hours and 45 minutes and will have bathroom breaks at the A20 Tradecenter building.
Plenty of opportunities to come by and cheer him on!
