ALS researchers from Ireland, Germany, Italy and Switzerland cheered on their colleague swimmers and enjoyed the positive vibe at the fourth Amsterdam City Swim.
With more research and more international cooperation, we have a better the chance to find a cure for ALS!
At the first Amsterdam City Swim in 2012, over 1,100 swimmers jumped into the canals of Amsterdam, swimming 2km, and together raised more than $922,000! In the two subsequent years, the event has both attracted more swimmers and raised more funds for ALS, totaling more than $6 million. In 2013, the Amsterdam City Swim was cited as the most transparent charity in the Netherlands by an influential weekly Dutch magazine. All of the money raised was donated to ALS research, making this the largest fundraising swim event in the Netherlands.
