About SingelSwim Utrecht Foundation
The SingelSwim Utrecht is the only swim in the oldest canal in the Netherlands: Utrecht Singel. The idea to organize the SingelSwim Utrecht was born in 2013. In 2015 the first edition took place with a great success. Singel Swim Utrecht is a charity event entirely dedicated to collecting funds and raising the awareness of the FSHD muscle disease. The initiative is supported by the FSHD Foundation and the Foundation Muscles for Muscles.
The funds raised during the SingelSwim Utrecht are 100% allocated to the research for a cure for FSHD. The choice of the research is jointly determined by the FSHD Foundation and the Foundation Muscles for Muscles.
For the next three editions of the event the Foundation SingelSwim Utrecht and the city of Utrecht have agreed that the event must retain its Utrecht character. This means a limited increase in the number of participants and the creation of a solid organization capable of ensuring an annual financial flow for research.
The foundation's objective is to draw attention to muscle diseases in general and to collecting and donating money to finance the development of better treatments of these diseases.
Members of the Board of the Foundation SingelSwim Utrecht are non-paid volunteers. The RSIN the Singel Swim Utrecht is 853 631 876.
