Another week passed by! The teams did wonderful in going the extra mile, some are getting close to the target of 60 km’s already! The weather did not always help and it is great to see that no snowy or cold weather can stop you from this great initiative.

A big thank you to the wonderful and generous suppliers and vendors; Willemsen Interieurbouw en Scheepsbetimmering , Scheepsreparatie-Nieuwbouw De Gerlien-van Tiem, Julian – Klaas Timmer Bloemen, who are supporting the teams and the worthy cause of supporting the Pink Ribbon Foundation.

The Pink Ribbon foundation which has a mission to fund projects and provide financial support to charities which relieve the needs of people who are suffering from, have been affected by breast cancer, or who work to advance the understanding of breast cancer and its early detection and treatment.

Thank you to the onboard crew of the A, not only they help the teams if they are short in team members but also donated a generous amount.

This week:

The SSB explored Vienna and Nurnberg : 40.06 km. You did deserve the cup of gluhwein!

The office team with support of the mini Druten team (Thank you Mihaela!) and remote walkers ;) 27,42 km

The SSA conquered the snow: 40,11 km

The team of the SSMT: 28 km and counting, thank you Milenko for your support in the snow!!

Getting really close to the 60 km’s now is the team of the JDV: 50,2 km’s.

Thank you to all the teams and remote support. It is not a competition and in the pictures you can see they are enjoying the walks despite the weather! Keep on walking, 7 days to go!

Let’s walk the extra mile – update 1

Well done! The teams started to walk for the worthy cause of Breast Cancer Awareness and Research.

The start was not that easy, where to find 10 team members that have time to walk with you?

Thankfully we have some extra support teams, our team in Druten, the corporates and as the A will start from tomorrow on there will be some extra crew!

The SSA team started off with a long walk! 10.37 km in total, well done!

The SSMT team already went for two walks last week with a total of 10.27 km

The SSB team walked around Nuremberg, 8,62 km!

The JDV team found a nearby petting zoo in their walk around Mantes-Les-Jolie, 6 km.

The office team is exploring Rheinfelden with the 1st walk of 5.48 km. The next walk is planned this afternoon at 14:00 with remote support from Stefanie in New York!

Thanks all, great start! Keep on walking and spreading the message!

Don’t forget to share!
