200 km ice skating for Traveling Light

Krijn finishes after 200km

Hooray! Krijn did it, what an awesome accomplishment: two hundred kilometer ice skating within nine hours. Who can do such a thing?

He finished the race with a new personal record. Last year his average speed was 22,92 km/hr and now, under much more difficult circumstances because of the poor quality of the ice and smaller laps, 23,01 km/hr. Of the more than thousand people who participated in that race, he finished 23rd. Wow. Last year he came in 182.

Everyone, thank you for your pledges for this fundraiser. More than 1,000 euro has been pledged, and gifts are still coming in (see current news in the sidebar, at the top of this blog) so we will announce the exact amount next week. All proceeds will go towards work among Gypsy children in Skopje, Macedonia. We will write more about that in the next post.

All pledges can be donated here:
