Cercle Brugge – Me to You
Me To You is a foundation that supports research into leukemia but is also in direct contact with patients and families of patients to start treatment. With Miguel Van Damme’s story in mind (Cercle’s ex-goalkeeper, who sadly passed away of this disease), Me To You is a logical community partner.
The intention is to involve supporters of Cercle Brugge to financially support research into Leukemia. It should also serve to inform people.
Every year Cercle tries to do this by dedicating a matchday in the month of September (Blood Cancer Awareness Month) to Me To You. During this matchday, we raise awareness for Leukemia by turning our stadium into the sign of Me To You and playing with the Me To You logo on the shirts. These shirts were auctioned after these games and were sold for between € 6.000 and €13.000.
Furthermore, the club organized a family day for Me To You. During this event, the spectators could enjoy live music, freestyle football, street food, a raffle, and finally a real auction. All of this resulted in an extra donation to Me To You.
