What are we doing it for?

You can give students from all over the world, the same opportunities you have gained yourself - by participating in the Erasmus Charity Run 2022! Together, we donate our time and energy to collect money for the Erasmus Trustfonds Scholarships.These scholarships are intended for candidates who have great potential but have less chance of following a study due to their background. Each scholarship amounts to € 15.000, with which students can pay their expenses for living, traveling and books. In most programs, recipients of the scholarship do not have to pay an institute fee and only pay the statutory tuition fees, their visa and insurance. This way, the Erasmus University Rotterdam and Erasmus Trustfonds offers scholarships that give talented students opportunities.


How do we raise money?

The minimum sponsor amount to be raised is € 40,00. However, this year we are introducing something new: if you raise € 200,00 or more before March 16, 2022 you will get your 1/4th marathon or your full marathon registration fee back! You will need to hand over your proof of payment for the 1/4th or the full marathon in order to get your registration fee back.

You can raise money via your own personal sponsor page or via a team sponsor page at Once you have registered for the 1/4 marathon or the full marathon, we will create a sponsor page for you. If you want to raise money with a team, you can send an email to in which you include your team name and teammates by email to We will then create a team page for you. Also in this case, every teammate will have to raise a minimum amount of € 40,00.
