NautaDutilh’s swimmers, who will be taking part in the second Amsterdam City Swim on Sunday, are today preparing for Sunday’s final in a fun way. The international law firm has installed a real swimstream right next to its office on Amsterdam’s Zuidas.
The starting signal was given at 7 a.m. by Michaëla Ulrici, Chairwoman of the Board. "Our work puts us firmly in the middle of society. We want to contribute to the way it works, which is why we like the idea of using sport to raise money. This time the money will go to research into the causes of ALS (Amyotrophic lateral sclerosis)". Apart from allowing NautaDutilh’s lawyers to put in a final training session between the office blocks, the firm wants to use this swimstream to focus attention on the Amsterdam City Swim. “The more people we manage to enthuse, the more donations will follow,” adds Michaëla Ulrici. “We hope that even more money will be raised through this unique swimming training.”
Last year, NautaDutilh raised no less than €14,500 – an amount that the swimmers want to top this year. The firm will add a further €2,500 to the funds raised.
