Naaldwijk - December 16, 2019
Another record at the Westland Santarun: the third version raised more than € 16,000 on Saturday. Despite windy cold and rain, around 360 participants dressed and Santa Claus walked and walked through Naaldwijk. Santarun Day is an initiative of two local Rotary clubs, Westland and Westland Polanen. The proceeds are "far and near" for charities. That means that the Santa money partly goes to children's homes in Sibiu, Romania, where mainly handicapped (orphaned) children live. The other half is for the Food Bank Westland. That amount is used to give foodbank customers, just like many other Westlanders, something extra in the form of a Christmas gift.

Since this year, Koen Pack has been sponsoring Ilse Lek (17), who practices her favorite sport in Austria as much as possible. She started in competitive skiing in 2017 and was first in the national ranking of the year since 2002 after the first season. Ilse was selected by the Dutch National Ccoach for various international children's competitions. It was her Dutch trainer who advised her to train with an Austrian private ski team. There are six other girls on this team who also belong to the international ski summit. She likes it a lot, despite being the only non-Austrian competitor.
From this month the physical training starts again with training weeks of 20 hours per week. She does this to be as fit as possible in the winter and to be as well prepared as possible for the competitions. The goal for next year is to ski as many international competitions as possible and to end up as high as possible to be able to ski the European Championships this year. We wish Ilse every success with this!
