Serving for a Cause: Gepidae's 24-Hour Volleyball Marathon Triumph!

In the spirit of community and the love for volleyball, Gepidae, a dynamic Dutch volleyball club, recently hosted a sporting event that blended passion and charity. In collaboration with Let's Keep The Ball Flying (LKTBF), they organised a 24-hour volleyball marathon, raising a remarkable 1425 euros dedicated to LKTBF's global initiatives.

A Double Impact: Local and Global Giving

Gepidae's fundraising prowess didn't stop there. The club demonstrated a profound commitment to community welfare by securing a total of 2850 euros. A generous 50% of this sum found its way to LKTBF, contributing to the global mission of making volleyball accessible to all. The remaining 50% was dedicated to a local charity (Serve the City), fortifying Gepidae's bond with their home town in Tilburg, Netherlands.
