On Sunday, 29 augustus 2021 we are jumping in the Amsterdam canals to raise money for ALS. Flamingos are not known for their swimming skills. For us this is a serious challenge to swim 2 entire kilometres in open water! We really appreciate your support with donations and/or cheering us on! We would love your support for a great cause!
Amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS) is a rare neurological disease that primarily affects the nerve cells (neurons) responsible for controlling voluntary muscle movement (those muscles we choose to move). Voluntary muscles produce movements like chewing, walking, and talking. The disease is progressive, meaning the symptoms get worse over time. Currently, there is no cure for ALS and no effective treatment to halt or reverse the progression of the disease.
