On the occassion of the Ostend Night run 22nd of September 2018, more than 70 brave people run & supported the Run To Connect project. This great initiative promoted the EULAR campaign 'Don't Delay, Connect Today', raised awareness about rheumatic diseases and emphasized the importance of early diagnosis and access to proper care. So YES let’s do this!

support in different ways:

  • Either by running during the Ostend Night Run in a T-shirt of the “Don’t Delay, Connect Today” campaign
  • Or as an encourager along the trail:Encouragement would be great and also pretty necessary. Also not runners are more than welcome to be on the picture with the runners. The more, the better.
