About us


The RapenburgRace will be organised completely importless by Foundation RapenburgRace and a committee consisting of students from Leiden. The foundation features an ANBI-status and donors may, under certain conditions, deduct their donations from income or corporation tax. All the incomes from the donations to the swimmers will completely benefit the research in paraplegia.

Remuneration Policy

The total donated amount will go to spinal cord injury research, through donations to Project March, Time is Spine and a research project into hand support with a high spinal cord injury. The board members and the organizing committee are doing this entirely voluntarily and therefore receive no expense allowance.
