The 1st edition of De 100 van Leeghwater has been a great success! I quote one of the spontaneous reactions on Facebook:
“What a great event you have created! Thank you organisation, thank you all the volunteers! What enthusiasm you showed, you don’t learn that, you have that in you! Helpful, cheerful, uplifting, motivating, what a great team of volunteers’.
I couldn’t put it any better.
The great success is the dreamed result of enthusiastic walkers, organizers, volunteers and sponsors who did not shy away from this challenge! With all of them we have created a great new event.
Thank you all!
And from now on we look forward eagerly to the 2nd edition! It will be from Friday 3 on Saturday 4 August 2018. I hope to greet you all again then. And with you many others!
Foundation 100 van Leeghwater,
Jan de Reus (Chairman)
