Expedition Fit

Our Story

Sadly most of us have, in one way or another, been affected by the concequences of cancer.
Suddenly the world consists of hospitals, oncologists and treatments. Not only for the
patient, but also for the family. Treatment is, often times, very general and not adapted to the individual patient. That's why individualized cancer research/treatment is of crucial importance. By participating in the annual 'Stelvio for life' challenge, we strive to raise money for fundamental research with regards to cancer. We do this together...

  • ...to enable individualized cancer research for as many people as possible. 
  • ...to improve the survival chance of people with cancer.
  • ...in loving memory of all employees and loved ones who have lost their battle with cancer.

Especially in loving memory of William Pijnenburg, former director and owner of AAE, who, on the 5th of july 2016, sadly lost the battle against cancer.

AAE stands for vitality on all levels. When you look at what AAE has achieved, it lies within the wellbeing of our people.

Stelvio for life Challenge

By participating in the annual ‘Stelvio for Life’ challenge, we strive to raise money for
fundamental Individualized cancer treatment. This way we can provide more and more cancer patients with tailor fit treatment, which will greatly improve their survival chances. The Stelvio for life challenge takes us to the ‘Passo dello Stelvio’, one of Europe’s highest mountains in northern Italy. The Stelvio for life participants commit to raise a minimum of € 1,- for every elevation meter climbed. The climb covers a distance of 21,1 km and a total elevation of 1533 meters. This means that every participant will raise at least € 1533,- for individualized cancer research.

Your donation will 100% support the ‘Stelvio for life’ foundation and therefore individualized cancer research.

But our journey, Expedition Fit, has already started. Expedition fit is AAE’s journey towards vitality and provides us with a different way to contribute to a happier, healthier and more beautiful world. Not only by working on our own vitality, but also by pushing our limits in order to contribute to crucial individualized cancer treatment.
