No Wageningen team in Alpe d’HuZes

For the first time in many years it proved impossible to get a WUR team together to compete in the Alpe d’HuZes, a sponsored run, walk or cycle in the French Alps in aid of cancer research.

‘Taking part is very time-consuming,’ explains Herman Vermeer, who took part in the cycling event last year. ‘You have to train, but it’s the fund-raising that takes up the most time.’ But on Saturday 21 November the starting shot sounded in the Forum for the Big Challenge team (photo). This is the team of livestock farmers which Wageningen UR joined in recent years. ‘If we can get a team together in the next couple of weeks we could still take part,’ says Vermeer. KG
