On September 8 -9, Team Eindhoven in Motion took on the challenge of Meerhoven24 – a 24 hour relay run, raising money for Make a Wish NL.
It was a wonderful event and a big shout out goes to all the organizers, volunteers, sponsors and companies who support this wonderful cause. €56168 was raised, and thanks to the generosity of our family and friends, our team contributed well over €2000 to that amount.
There were 23 teams all up, and we became known as the international team (we come from ten different countries). We were also the only all female team. We had tons of fun and I’m sure our laughing could be heard for miles.
Running around the 2.1km course, especially in the dead of night, was at times tiring, but also quite amazing. Spectators camped out along the route and cheered all the runners on – they were a welcome sight when you felt like all you wanted was to sleep and your legs felt like lead.
In short, the entire event and experience was awesome and we’re already planning next year!
