On Sunday, October 24, the NN Marathon Rotterdam was run. The Erasmus Charity Run, for students, staff and alumni of EUR, also took place that day.
This year 13.454 euro was raised via sponsoring of the runners.
The Erasmus Charity Run is a special part of the official Rotterdam Marathon. Participants may run the 10.55-kilometre marathon or the 42.195-kilometre marathon. Students, academics and staff may join the Erasmus Charity Run of Erasmus University Rotterdam. An unforgettable experience, and for a good cause.
The Erasmus Charity Run is a great example of an initiative of Erasmus University that aims to create social impact. Runners at the Charity Run raise funds for scholarships. This way, talented but disadvantaged students are enabled to pursue academic studies.
Run for scholarships
Together, we donate our time and energy to raise money for as many scholarships as possible, during this special charity run. The Erasmus Charity Run is more than just a fundraiser. It also encourages students and staff to contribute to the community, through sports. Besides, an international group of students delivers a voluntary contribution to the organisation of the Rotterdam Marathon.
The first edition of Erasmus Charity Run was held during the 100th year anniversary of Erasmus University Rotterdam.
