Radio 538 is a Dutch radio station that recently released the story of Jeroen van Veen. A runner who started a donation campaign for hospital Prinses Máxima Centrum, to collect money for child oncology. Gerrit Tamboer, CEO of Fullstaq, wanted to help and purchased 50 starting tickets.

Jeroen his son Kasper was diagnosed with a brain tumor and was treated in the Princes Máxima Centre. They've spent over 1,000 visits going in for treatments and checkups only to lose his son in the end. This was his motivation to start running, so fewer parents suffer through the same fate. Jeroen 'the runner' now runs 10km every day for a year, to collect 1 million euros to donate to the centre. At the time of writing the counter is on € 694,982,- euros raised.

Radio 538 contacted Jeroen with the mission: Get Jeroen to one million (in Dutch it rhymes ;)). They set up the 538 Morning run on March 16th. Our CEO Gerrit Tamboer followed the entire story on Kasper and Jeroen via the radio station and when the tickets for the Morning Run went live he got 50 of them.

It's naturally very conflicting. I have a 5-year-old son myself, and when you hear a story like the one of Jeroen, you can't help but tear up. On the other hand, his resilience is incredibly inspiring, and that's what we want to support. - Gerrit Tamboer, Fullstaq CEO

Fullstaq is a family company. Not only because we feel like family to each other, but a large number of employees have children themselves. The Prinses Máxima Centre is a cause close to home. No parent wishes to have to go through what Jeroen had to go through. With Fullstaq we are at a point where we could take this action to support Jeroen so we did.

On March 16, 50 Fullstaq colleagues and partners will come together at the Olympic stadium to walk or run 5.38km with 488 other participants.
