Why am I participating in AD6 for the second time?

Dear Friends,
On June 6, my wife and I will be facing a mountain – the famous Alpe d’Huez. The 14th edition of Alpe d’HuZes – a Dutch initiative against Cancer - brings us together again in the French Alpes to support research against cancer.
We participated last year for the 1st time, and the experience has been so heart-warming that we’ve decided to try the challenge again. But, unlike last year, our kids have decided to actively participate this year, by bike and by foot!
My initial motivation to participate in Alpe d’HuZes was personal. Support my wife who had just gone through a heavy journey as a cancer patient, and is still too often reminded of it. Try to turn this painful experience into a rich journey for us and for our kids. And also, given all the support we got in the past, I wanted to do “something” as well in return for cancer patients: by bringing our energy to the event, and importantly raising funds to support research against cancer.
I was very happy and excited earlier this year to hear our kids say “can we also climb the mountain this year?”. It will be great to see them make this journey fully theirs too. The motivation to participate in Alpe d’HuZes is becoming definitely more than personal.
So here we are now, busy training to make it till turn #21! and meet our personal challenge: 1 climb for the young girls, 3 for our oldest son, 2 for my wife and 6 for me. Wish us luck…!
