Octo Marine supports a new charity – Stichting Eck Roosen

Sep 3, 2021

We are delighted to announce our support for a new charity Stichting Eck Roosen, based in Holland. The aim of this charity is to raise € 30,000 for the genetic analysis of young patients with pancreatic cancer (PAN-NGS).

On the day Eck Roosen, founder of the Eck Roosen Foundation, would have turned 54 years old, a group will climb the Mont Ventoux and raise money for the battle against pancreatic cancer.

In 2017, Eck came up with a plan to cycle up the Mont Ventoux in order to raise money for Climbing against MS. A fantastic cause for which he has raised a lot of money together with family and friends. When Eck became ill in 2018 and passed away a year later, we promised him that we would also go up that mountain and raise money for the research into pancreatic cancer.

On September 16, 2021, the time has finally come. We go up with cyclists and walkers and collect as much money as possible. The foundation is in close cooperation with the Support Casper Foundation: a small, but very enthusiastic team working on the realization of a dream: to stop the destructive power of pancreatic cancer.
