The first Rapenburg Race was organized in Leiden on the 23th in June 2018. The Rapenburg Race is an 800 meter swimming competition through the most famous canal in the Netherlands. In 2018, money was raised for educational projects for refugee children. The second edition was organized the 21st of September 2019. The money that was raised went to research to improve the quality of life for people with paraplegia. In 2020, the Rapenburg Race will once again be swum for paraplegia research.
