Amsterdam Students and Staff Run For Charity


Amsterdam racers
A message from CIEE Amsterdam staff:

Dear CIEE colleagues,

Sunday the 23rd of September 2012 the very famous Dutch Dam tot Damloop will take place starting in the city centre of Amsterdam and finishing 10 English Miles up North in a town called Zaandam with 50.000 athletes. More than 200.000 spectators will encourage the runners along the run!

 Dam tot Dam Loop: CIEE team 10 tickets

 CIEE Amsterdam got hold of 10 tickets and will run the Dam tot Damloop with eight students, Hannah Huber (Resident Director) and Eric Weijers (Program Assistant) for the special charity run, and donations will go to foundation “Waar Ontwikkeling Werkt” (WOW= Where Opportunities Work).

Foundation Where Opportunities Work

 Renée Spruit, the Student Services Coordinator at CIEE, founded this foundation with five other board members almost 2 years ago to support children around the world that need better chances for development and education. Momentarily WOW supports three projects;

  • Corazon Inquieto (Bolivia): a day care facility for market children in La Paz, Bolivia.
  • Hand in Hand (Ghana): a home for mentally and physically disabled children, where amongst other things they learn how to craft jewelry.
  • Kamalabari (Nepal): a primary school for children that live in a remote area of the country.

Foundation WOW is based on four key pillars: enlarge chances for development, offer structural help, stimulate the local economy and transparency & personal. The six board members committed to WOW on a voluntary base.


Since the students and CIEE staff are running for a charity, we are hoping to collect at much money as possible; every penny is welcome! On Facebook we have created a special page where we will promote the CIEE Dam tot Dam group and where we will also keep track of the donations that we have received:!/WowDamTotDamLoop

Would you like to support this event? Hit the like button on the Facebook page or become a sponsor of the CIEE team by donating money to the banking account of Stichting Waar Ontwikkeling Werkt (with the reference of “CIEE Dam tot Damloop team”). Every time we receive a new donation we will update the Facebook with your donations.
