I was inspired by Sander Askamp to take on the challenge to drive up the Mt. Ventoux this year. Sander has been an inspiration for us as a company and for me individual. He made me aware of the goals of the Inspire2Live foundation and I fully embrace these. The task to climb up will be tough as a non-cyclist, but with the proper training and especially drive I will make it in September!
In my personal live I haven’t been confronted yet with a lot of cases of cancer, but just outside my family circle it has hit hard. One of the persons I am going to make the top of the Mt. Ventoux is Jose. She is the receptionist of our company – our shining welcome to the Voerman world. She works for years already for us and she is ill for some time now. She is fighting the disease with ups and downs and I hope we will give her extra energy to fight the disease with the spirit coming from this bike ride.
The Voerman Group has teamed up in Movemotion this year and I look forward seeing all of you in September and hope this event will help raise a lot of money. It would be good if we can set a new milestone and motivate more people & inspire 2 live.
