Stig Broeckx crosses the finish line: almost €30,000 for brain-injury research

Stig did it! The crowdfunding campaign by former professional cyclist Stig Broeckx has come to an end. Broeckx and his team managed to raise no less than 30,000 for the Brain Battle Fund, which will enable the Maastricht UMC+ to purchase a new brain monitor. We would like to thank all donors and participants for their contribution! 

Inspiration was the magic word of the crowdfunding campaign—in more ways than one. First came the kick-off in the Shimano Experience Centre in Valkenburg. Then the dedicated Marc Bijl took it upon himself to create beautiful artworks of Stig Broeckx to give to donors. Not to mention Stig’s unique cycle race; for this campaign he successfully cycled part of the ‘Hel van de Kempen’.

Source of inspiration
Stig Broeckx has been an inspiration for many people. We are grateful for the support they showed for this campaign. Many shared special, personal stories of brain injury, reminding Marcel Ariës and his team once again of the importance of their innovative research. The money raised will enable them to take another step towards saving brain cells in the future.
