On August 4, 2003, our friend Maarten van Sten aged 27 died of the consequences of aggressive melanoma cancer.
Maarten was passionate about sports cars. He wanted to share his passion with everyone. In his name we bring together exclusive dream cars to battle cancer in an annual event: the MaartenMemorial. After all, you live on as long as you are remembered. The next MaartenMemorial will take place on Thursday August 1st.
Our main objective: help cancer patients forget their illness for a day. How? By inviting them to take a ride in one of a hunderd spectacular sports cars from Rotterdam to Zandvoort, in the west of the Netherlands. In Zandvoort we will spend two hours on the Dutch national race course for a couple of fast laps. Another objective is to raise funds for the Maarten van Sten laboratory for cancer research at the Erasmus Medical Center Daniel den Hoed Clinic in Rotterdam. The previous fifteen MaartenMemorials already raised over € 1.5 million.
About the organisation
The MaartenMemorial is organised by Maarten's friends and a growing army of fantastic volunteers and faithful partners. We work on a zero euro budget, so you can be sure that every euro donated truly ends up where it is most needed: in the Maarten van Sten laboratory.
Your support is greatly appreciated. Below you will find all details for making a donation from outside the Netherlands. Please make sure to inform your driver of choice of your support so that we can add your sponsorship amount to the overall count. On behalf of Maarten, many thanks!
