We are proud to announce that with the 12th edition of the RAGweek the total amount of €29.015,385 was gathered for Villa Pardoes and the Plastic Soup Foundation. We want to thank everybody that has supported the RAGweek, organised an activity, made a donation or has enjoyed from what the RAGweek had to offer!
Thursday was a great day! During the day, GSV Excalibur held a book sale, in the afternoon the CPO had a drink in the RAGbar and we also visited the Marie Curie beer auction. In the evening, we split up in pairs to stop by all the activities organized that evening. Dorans, Stuban, AEGEE and Dance Fever organized a scavenger hunt named Kapitein Koek: Escape the city and Ikara spinned the wheel at the USA party. Laura and Alex visited the Jolly Jumper drink and the auction drink of InTenS, where they had the highest bid for a games evening with the board! The members of Mycelium, Umoja and GWS showed their musical side during Social Sounds and Sanne and Liese showed themselves from their slightly less musical side during FC Sophia’s Karaokenight. Plica Vocalis tested its members on their knowledge during the Millennials Pub Quiz, Meersterlijk gave away big prizes during their bingo and CognAC welcomed Patrick, Laura and Ikara at their open party Algorythmic. It has been a succesful day!
The RAGweek has started! Yesterday we kicked off the RAGweek with the Fancy Fair: sixteen stalls gathered at the Erasmusplein, where people could stop by to eat cupcakes, throw cake at someone’s face, meet our charities and more. In the afternoon we we also started with RAGsmakelijk, during the RAGweek you can donate 50 cents with your meal at Het Gerecht, Café C, De Haardt and FNWI or you can taste our RAG coffee special or RAG sandwich at DE Cafe. Also, during the RAGweek you can drink a beer at the RAGbar from 16:00 on in CultuurCafé.
In the evening the RAGrun organised by Carolus Magnus took place followed by the RAGrun afterparty. We also took a look at the Men’s auction of Faunus and ofcourse our own party VUURROOD took place in Gas19! Comrade Winston, Philosopher, HAAT, Mofro and Oakwood played until the early hours.
We are proud to present you the two charities of the RAGweek 2019:
National: Villa Pardoes
Villa Pardoes (October 2000) is an initiative that was set up to enable parents and sick children to have a holiday week, which makes the family forget the illness or condition of the child as much as possible. Children can be children again, parents can relax and possibly share experiences with fellow-sufferers. In Villa Pardoes, adventures are experienced together, with family and friends. Villa Pardoes is , for a week, the warm nest where you come home after a day full of fun activities.
Villa Pardoes exists thanks to the efforts of a large number of volunteers, employees and sponsors who find it important that seriously ill children also have an unforgettable holiday.
International: Plastic Soup Foundation
The Plastic Soup Foundation was established in February 2011, with the intention to prevent as much unnecessary plastic use as possible. This organization works according to a fixed approach with the following spearheads: Be Aware (increased awareness about problematic plastic use), Get Educated (development of educational programs and increase of information dissemination) and Find Solutions (finding possibilities to make the plastic soup disappear as much as possible).
This year the RAGweek will take place for the 12th time from february 20 to 27. The money that we will raise together will be donated to the two charities.
We proudly present the candidate board of Stichting RAGweek 2018-2019:
They will start their activities on September 3rd. We wish them a lot of fun and succes in the upcoming year!
Last night the winning lottery tickets were announced! Check it out here and maybe you are the one that’s going to Paris!
Yesterday we had to recover for a little bit, but today we are back with the photos of the last day of the RAGweek 2018!
We started the day with RAGsmakelijk again, the last day in de Refter, het Gerecht, de Haardt and the FNWI canteen. In the morning, Tessa and Maarten were at Radio N1 to explain more about the RAGweek and our charities. Next up was the RAGout sale of the ESV Nijmegen, while the JFV was selling hotdogs at their own food event. Postelein organised a lecture about suicide prevention with our charity 113. This was a very interesting lecture. After that we went to the RAGbar for one final night. This time the bar take-overs were with GSV Excalibur, GWS and SOFv! The final activities were organised by Mycelium. They raised a great amount of money with their auction drink. Finally, there was the RAGchelous Cantus: St. Stevenskerk, in association with HRG Achelous. The closing party of RAGweek 2018 was in the Villa.
RAGweek is almost over..
Yesterday we also had some activities, such as the CognAC evening and the dishes collect service of the USR. The final activities will take place in the upcoming weeks, for instance, the Sigma dropping, auction drinks of the member associations of the CSN and ofcourse the RAGrun with Carolus. We hope to see your there and we want to thank everyone that supported us these last weeks!
Yesterday we organised the RAGchelous cantus in coöperation with HRG Achelous. A fantastic cantus in the St. Stevenschurch. With 209 attendees, one of the biggest cantus in Nijmegen. Wether your a student on the HAN or a member of Phocas, everyone was invited to celebrate and to attend this great event. After the first drink with the RAGweek board, the cantus went smoothly. There was a lot of ‘fraternization’. After that we went with the whole corona to the Villa. This is where the Closing party RAGweek 2018 was celebrated. We had a great time there and people enjoyed hotdogs and fresh pastry.
The photos of the RAGchelous cantus are here.
During the RAGweek we had the scoop of the new beer of the Brouwtoren! The Brouwtoren Güero, a light pale ale of 5,8%.

We also had a hallway lunch of the faculty of arts committee and there was a falafel and shawarma sale at TvA with Mycelium. Later that day there was a theater night at the Erasmusbuilding and Mundus played boardgames at the RAGbar. They also provided bartenders for our bar. After that Maarten and Eline went to a beer tasting at st. Anneke. At the end of the night we went to Praud to be Faudt of various different study associations. They sold hotdogs for our charities. All together it was a nice day and we are looking forward to our final day and Eindfeest RAGweek 2018 at Villa van Schaeck. We hope to see you soon!
