Alpe d'HuZes is a unique sporting event where as much money as possible is raised for cancer research and for improving the quality of life of people with cancer. On a single day, 5000 participants will bike, hike or run the Alpe d'Huez. Attempting a maximum of six climbs, under the motto 'giving up is not an option'. The race day is always on the first Thursday in June and is part of a complete week, which is being prepared for a full year. A special week full of solidarity, in which cancer is openly discussed for everyone. In 2022, the 21 turns of the Alpe d'Huez will be climbed for the fifteenh time.
The Alpe d'HuZes organisation consists only of volunteers. Everyone who does their bit does so voluntarily. From security guard or caterer to doctor or chairman. We have volunteers who work all year round (some for more than ten years) and volunteers who only work during the Alpe d'HuZes week or on the race day. All these helping hands together make Alpe d'HuZes a success. Together, for each other.
