What do we expect from you?

  • Challenge yourself!
    You can’t run? Join the start2run group, we’ll take you over the finish line!
    You can run? Go for 5km, or maybe 10km, or even 15km?
  • You ask your family and friends for a reward in case you achieve your challenge. Because the goal of this event is to raise money.

Why do we run?

The goal is to raise €1000 for Villa Rozenrood. ‘De Warmste Week‘ is an initiative from Studio Brussel (radiostation) and they invite everyone to raise money in their own way. So, we as Merkator are organizing the Merkator Run. During the week before Christmas, there is a heartwarming event at Puyenbroeck, Wachtebeke that brings all the money together.

Which initiative are we supporting?

We are running for Villa Rozenrood. This charity is a holiday destination for families with a disabled child. Villa Rozenrood not only offers the specific needs and care for the child, but also creates the environment so the whole family can recharge their batteries.
