October has finally arrived and that can mean only one thing: the charity month has begun! We are the Benefit Committee October (BeCO). As a 7 women strong committee, we aim to raise as much money as possible for charity. Our chosen charity this year is the UMCG Alzheimerfonds. We do this by the means of organising three various activities that take place in October, our charity month. On the 7th of October we will kick off the charity month with a spectacular party at Huize Maas. This party is well attended by medical students and those from other studies. After a few days to recover we have a chance to network with others at the charity dinner at Prinsenhof on the 10th of October. During the dinner a lottery will take place between the courses with items and prizes from in and around Groningen. At the end of the night there will be an auction for selected prizes. The charity month will come to an end with our final activity: the Alzheimer Disease Lecture. During the lecture, Dr. Elske Marije Abma and award winning Toine Heijmans will inform us more about the disease. So come support us by attending our activities and help us raise as much money as possible for the UMCG Alzheimerfonds!
