For the third year running, the Aramco Beach Run proved a huge draw among residents of The Hague, one of the Netherlands' largest cities and home to the company's European headquarters.
Around 1,700 runners, from toddlers through to seniors, took on the four distances offered, which included a 15 kilometre 'beast run', this year run by many professionals.
Once again, funds raised were donated to Juliana Kinderziekenhuis (Juliana Children's Hospital), one of the country's leading providers of infant medical care. Donations were received by its radiology department, which will purchase a tailor made 'thorax tripod', a device that helps children under the age of four make x-rays of the lungs and heart. Without this equipment, young children are exposed to unnecessary radiation.
