Retrieve for life against cancer

- - - - - - - - - - -

Retrieve For Life ("Apportera För Livet") is a Swedish charity event that since 2015 is held annually. The 2019 event is held at Äleby Gård, 80 km west of Stockholm and 25 km east of Strängnäs, June 1-2, 2019. 

The event is non-profit and all proceeds go to the Swedish Cancer Society and their efforts to find a cure for cancer. Retrieve For Life has raised almost 1.6 million SEK since its inception. We have started a fund for this year's event where you can contribute to this cause, "WT Apportera För Livet 2019"
