PADDLING NON-STOP

 

HELP US RAISE AWARENESS ABOUT
ACANTHAMOEBA KERATITIS

I am Jelle, and I am going to paddle NON-STOP for 210 km in September to raise awareness for Acanthamoeba Keratitis.

 

In September I’m going to participate in the NON-STOP 11 city sup tour. 210km non-stop day and night, hoping to finish in around 30 hours. Two people have inspired me to participate. Margriet Koeman is the reason why I have began to do SUP as a sport, and her race last year in the Elfstedentocht was phenomenal. I couldn’t wait to join her this year. The other person is Juliette Vila Sinclair Spence as her story gives me the motivation to work every day getting stronger and more resilient while raising awareness of the disease Acanthamoeba Keratitis (AK) that has brought her so much pain, sadness and effect on her surroundings. She is not alone, there are many more like her.

Which is why I have decided to couple my participation to a fundraiser, collecting money for the Acanthamoeba Keratitis (AK) Eye Foundation.

Any support is welcome! Thanks a lot in advance!
