On 27 and 28 April the third edition of Levensloop will take place. Ghent University team also participates in this initiative of the Foundation against Cancer. Take part in our initiatives, buy or sell apples or run/walk with us.
With the Levensloop (’Run for Life’) the Foundation against Cancer wants to support cancer patients and raise money for cancer research. For 24 hours, teams run a relay around the circuit. Every team has at least one person on the track. Levensloop is not a competition. Participating teams sponsor themselves and thus raise funds.
Ghent University is happy to contribute to this initiative. Team Ghent University has decided to raise at least 10.000 euro. For that we can use a lot of helping hands and especially... legs! The rector has already confirmed his participation and interesting initiatives were launched.
Core stability for Levensloop
On April 27 at 5:00 Koen Van der Jeugt will give ’Core Stability for Levensloop’ at the Blaarmeersen. The registration fee is 7 euros and goes entirely to the Levensloop Team Ghent University.
Yoga for Levensloop
On April 28 at 11:00 Leen Ide will give ’Yoga for Levensloop’, also in the Blaarmeersen. For this activity you also pay a 7 euro registration fee, which is intended entirely for the Ghent University Levensloop Team.
Apples against cancer
We also add the income from our apple sales to the amount that Team Ghent University collects for the Foundation against Cancer. You can buy an exclusive and reusable bag, filled with five apples. This is possible at different locations and times:
o 4 April, 12:00 to 13:00, at the entrance of auditorium L on the campus Boekentoren (building 18.01 Plateau-Rozier; Jozef Plateaustraat 22).
o 5 April, 12:00 to 13:00, resto Faculty of Veterinary Medicine.
o 8 April, 12:00 to 13:00, resto Kantienberg.
You can also order apples by sending an e-mail to Hilde Dewulf , after which you pick up the apples at Campus Coupure. From 10 packages, delivery is provided!
Do you want to sell apples yourself at a different location? That’s possible! You then determine the location and the time at which you do the sale yourself. Please agree with Hilde at least one week in advance, so that the order and delivery can take place in time.
Levensloop Ghent 2019 takes place at the Blaarmeersen from Saturday 27 April 15:00 to Sunday 28 April 15:00. Do you want to sell apples or set up another campaign to raise money? Or do a few laps for Team Ghent University during the Levensloop 2019? Let us know! You can register via the Team UGent page.
