Heist Loopt & Wandelt VIRTUAL

Sunday 31 May 2020

Sadly enough, the summer edition of 'Heist Loopt & Zingt' cannot take place this year … but don’t despair!

We wouldn’t be who we are if we hadn’t thought of an original and challenging alternative to keep people moving!

And of course … to raise money. Money that can be so well-spent by two of our wonderful local charities.

The full profit will reach them through Actie Zorgenmens.

So, what have we come up with? Well, brace yourself and get ready for ‘Heist Loopt en Wandelt Virtual!’, our first virtual running and walking tour! But … don’t be confused: the running and walking will not be done virtually, but will be real as life itself! We will be using an app to keep track of your achievements and avoid gatherings.

Social Distancing

1. A medal for all healthcare providers!

We symbolically donate your medal to all healthcare workers. They deserve it more than ever!

2. Support the local Social Grocery

We donate the total profits of this sporty day to the Social Grocery in Heist-op-den-Berg. At the Social Grocery, a limited number of products are sold at low prices, to the people who really need this most. The corona crisis has worsened the situation of a lot of people who lived under vulnerable conditions even before this crisis. The challenge of finding healthy but affordable food has increased. The demand for affordable food has risen sharply in recent weeks.

Your participation will contribute to this wonderful charity and will help local people in our community who need it most!
