May 22-23rd we were able to organize our first edition of Relay For Life in Hasselt. We had a fantastic success with 206 fighters, 2189 participants and we raised a total amount of 122.543 euros. This is a great foundation for next year!
It was an uplifting weekend filled with lots of emotions and coziness where the fighters were the center of everything. The big tent for the fighters was an oasis of rest where the fighters hung out for hours. A lot of them thanked us because they were able to rest and relax!
Also the many treats were a great hit!
What was obvious was the respect many participants had towards all the fighters! It was very quiet during the luminary ceremony, which left a non-erasable impression!
Underneath a bright, shining sun the people were able to enjoy lots of performances and demonstrations, lots of ambiance assured!
We’re already looking forward to our next edition next year with more teams and more fighters to spoil!

If you can’t fly, run
If you can’t run, walk
If you can’t walk, crawl
But never stand still
Never go down, always rise
If you can’t laugh, smile
If you can’t smile, be happy anyway
If you can’t be happy, be content
But never give up hope
Always keep going on
