Donation '' Brandwondenstichting'' as part of the Rotterdam Harbourrun 2018
Over dit project
With The Rotterdam Harbour run 2018 we succeed as a team to overcome the challenging 25 obstacles, harsh terrains, running 10 KM and focus on one goal: to raise as much money as possible for the Brandwondenstiching. We are proud that we can work together for this good cause and show that we care!
Every year an average of 900 people experience a serious burn accident after which they are admitted to one of the three Dutch burn centers in Beverwijk, Rotterdam or Groningen.
They offer the right specialist treatment and care to patients with burns, aimed at a quick and complete recovery. Around 9,000 people are treated annually at the first aid emergency after burn injury. And 92,000 people visit the General Doctor after a burn.
More than 25% of patients who end up in a burn center are younger than 5 years. These children face a life full of operations, because burn scars do not grow. Being part of this charity gives affected children a future where they can forget those scars and many operations.
