The head of the article is a bit misleading as there were four events that raised the amount. This was the fifth edition of this great event.
It started with Zumba against cancer, then last week there was BBQ against cancer, yesterday Softball against cancer and today Baseball against cancer. The last three were organized by former Red Sox farm hand Swen Huijer.
Swen started four years ago with a baseball clinic to raise money, so he could participate in the Dutch cycling event against cancer, Alpe d’Huzes. This was the start of a great baseball event where players from the Dutch Hoofdklasse and of team Kingdom of the Netherlands give baseball clinics to children.
Recently Swen Huijer started a Baseball against cancer foundation.
This year many players participated as instructor a few well known names:
Danny Rombley, Jesse Aussems, Roelie Henrique, Rachid Gerard, Byron Cornelisse, Lars Huijer (yes brother of…), Gilmer Lampe and Nick Stuifbergen.
Here are some impressions of this great event.
