It's winter in Europe and many people are sharpening their ice skates. Next week will be the 25th time that AEW (Alternative Elfsteden-tour Weissensee) organizes their skating events on the WeissenSee in Austria.
Many marathon ice skaters from Holland will challenge the cold, snow and ice and enter the 200 km (!) (which is about 125 miles) long race. Our friend Krijn Donk will enter this extreme race on the WeissenSee and we think that he is very brave!
Krijn wants to use his skating skills and endurance to fund raise for Traveling Light. We are of course super happy with this idea :) It is possible to sponsor Krijn in different ways:
- pledge a certain amount for finishing the race
- pledge a certain amount per kilometer accomplished
- pledge a certain amount no matter what his result will be

You can follow the race at the AEW website and they will have a webcam operating next week. As a sponsored non-profit we will be listed on their website. Of course all proceeds will go to one of our projects. We would love for many people to encourage Krijn and sponsor him and thus helping Traveling Light.
