    Have you ever wanted to have an impact on your community, but never been quite sure how to do it? Here’s your chance to get active!

    The Hero’s Race is an international charity event held in 5 cities across Europe. You can walk or run the 6 kilometres, alongside hundreds of other heroes! Amsterdam’s race takes place on July 8th – which gives you plenty of time to raise heaps of money for a charity!

    The best thing about this event is that you can choose which cause you want to participate on behalf of. You also have a
    challenge to set yourself: raise 300 Euros or more for the charity of your choice, and then become a genuine hero in this amazing event!

    Head to the web-site www.heldenrace.com for more information, to register for the race and to get involved in something truly wonderful and important.

    Nuit Blanche (The White Night) is coming to Amsterdam again on the 16th of June. This celebration of art and culture is an urban expedition that runs from 7pm to 7am, and makes use of various spaces in the centre and the east of the city.

    Do yourself a favour, and leave yourself enough energy to discover this wonderful event, which was first initiated in Paris before being brought to several cities around the world, including Amsterdam.

    The city literally becomes a laboratory for creativity, so make sure you take a walk around ‘the lab’.
