The money collected during the Roparun is allocated by the Palliative Care board to institutions, causes or projects that contribute to the Roparun mission:
"Adding life to days, when days often can't be added to life"
The money collected during the Roparun event is allocated to institutions, causes or projects that fulfill the Roparun motto. This can include equipping a walk-in centre where (ex-)cancer patients and/or relatives can meet. Holidays for people with cancer and their families so that they can create a beautiful memory, even in an unpleasant period. Workshops in hospitals where people with cancer learn to deal with changes in appearance arising from the treatments. A nice day out for sick children and their brothers or sisters, so that they don’t have to think about being ill for a while. The development of ‘palliative boxes’, a resource for people in a terminal phase who would like to stay in their own home environment. Or equipping a hospice to ensure that people can stay in a pleasant environment during their final phase of life. (source: Roparun website)
