Do you not want to organise an activity, but do you want to do something? Join an event! For example, join the Run4Usher team or participate in the Dam to Dam walk. Or organise your own event and donate the proceeds to our foundation.
A sportive effort is an excellent way to support us. You meet other people involved in Usher and fellow-sufferers and, apart from the benefits of the activity, you improve your condition as well!
If you participate in an event yourself, you can create a sponsor campaign through our campaign platform. The donations resulting from your personal campaign are then directly transferred to the bank account of the Stichting Ushersyndroom.
Often organisations of existing events are looking for good causes to which they can donate the proceeds of an event. If you come across such an appeal, do not hesitate and bring the Stichting Ushersyndroomto the attention of the organisation. Stichting Ushersyndroom is an original good cause on which sponsoring can have a great impact!
Together we are strong! By helping in the organisation of an event you get to know other people involved with Usher and you also commit yourself to a really good cause! Or organise an event in your region together with friends and family!
Every third weekend of November, the Run4Usher event takes place during the 7 Hills Run in Nijmegen, the Netherlands. The 7 Hills Run is a famous footrace of 15 kilometres through the hilly landscape of the Rijk van Nijmegen. The 7 Hills Night is really spectacular: running 7 kilometres in the dark. This is quite a challenge and all spectators and runners are decorated with lamps. The Run4Usher team has participated in this run for several years already and the team grows every year again. Ushers with their running buddies, family and friends, physicians and researchers, everyone runs along! Do you also want to run with us? Register yourself, so we can keep you informed!
The 40 of Breda is held every year on the first Sunday of October. This is a unique running event in which all distances of the Singelloop Breda [run along the moats of Breda, the Netherlands] are run. Ever since the start of ‘the 40 of Breda’, the proceeds have gone to two good causes, being the Driving Nurses Foundation and the Usher Syndrome Foundation. Isn’t that fantastic!
Do you also want to take up the challenge of running 40 kilometres? Just join us and register for this event in Breda.
Are you going to participate in the Four Days’ Walking Event in Nijmegen this year? Walk for Usher! We make no longer use of the campaign platform of the Four Days’ Walking Event sponsor walk, because there are costs involved. Of course this is a waste of money. You can very easily create a sponsor campaign using our own campaign platform and have yourself sponsored while you walk the Four Days’ Walking Event.
Of course, you can also do this when you walk any four-day walk in your own neighbourhood or near your school.
The International Usher Awareness Day is held every third Saturday of September. This coincides with the Dam tot Dam walking tour. A perfect opportunity to make Usher Syndrome better known with a large group and to meet each other. The Dam tot Dam walking tour is a splendid walk from AmsterDAM to ZaanDAM through a beautiful landscape. You can choose between distances of 10, 20, 27 or even 42 kilometres. Do you want to walk along? Then register by sending an e-mail.
Usher Campaign Rijnsburg is a group of friends that is active for their friend Liesbeth and other people suffering from Usher Syndrome. They organise campaigns to collect as much money as possible. Take a look at their event page.
The Wateringse Veld Loopfestijn [the Wateringse Veld Run] was held on Sunday 14 June 2020. The Stichting Ushersyndroomis the good cause of this event for the second time in a row! It is an entertaining running event with various distances for everyone to enjoy. Join us and register today!
