They accomplish this by stimulating and financing scientific research into the possibilities of healing people with a muscular disease and improving their quality of life.

The day is all about sportsmanship and collecting as much money as possible together.

Extra exciting activities
In addition to the soccer match, there will be all sorts of activities, such as a silent disco, photo booth, bounce house, and DJ’s. In the afternoon, an auction will be held where the highest bidders will receive exciting prizes, such as soccer jerseys signed by the Dutch national team and weekend trips, and at the same time donate money to the Princess Beatrix Spierfonds.
