Epica - Mark Jansen Raises 3800 Euros For WWF

As stated in earlier news, Mark Jansen took part in the benefit bicyle marathon La Marmotte to raise money for the Amazon to save the jaguar.

The following is from the band's site:
We are very proud to announce that Mark finished his benefit cycle marathon the Marmotte. The ride of 174 km took him an astonishing 12 hours and according to Mark this was the heaviest ride he ever did. How much he raised for the WWF exactly has to be calculated now, but we hope to announce it soon!

Mark wants to thank everybody who has sponsored him. Without your faith this wouldn't have been possible!

WWF calculated how much Mark raised and it turned out to be... 3800 euros.

So once again, Mark wants to thank everyone who sponsored him.
