Last weekend, the 38th NN Marathon Rotterdam took place in Rotterdam, the Netherlands. The approximately 40,000 participants included 415 NN colleagues who ran a variety of distances.

Thanks to the participants of the NN Marathon Rotterdam, local companies and NN’s community investment programme NN Future Matters, we are proud to have raised EUR 83,498 for Jeugdsportfonds Rotterdam. With this donation, 371 children will be able to play sports in Rotterdam this year. Erben Wennemars, ambassador of Jeugdsportfonds, received the cheque from Fleur Hudig, Head of Corporate Citizenship NN Group.

The proud winner of the NN Marathon Rotterdam was Kenneth Kipkemoi, who finished with a time of 2:05:44 in this IAAF Gold Label road race. Five athletes from the NN Running Team also participated, with Abera Kuma finishing in second place and Laban Korir in fourth.

The NN Running team celebrated its first anniversary on Thursday 6 April.
