During the Cruyff Legacy 14K 2023, gross €501.014 was raised by runners, walkers and sponsors. Contributions from main sponsors and entry fees funded the event. Donations from runners fully benefitted various sports and projects within disability sports. 

The Cruyff Foundation partly supported its 7 sports associations with this. The focus here is to make sport structurally accessible to disabled children and talent recognitions and development. Also we collaborate with the sport associations to organise workshops, field days and other events where many childre come together. The 7 sports associations are: the Dutch Atletics Union (Atletiekunie), Royal Dutch Cycling Union (KNWU), Royal Dutch Swimming Association (KNZB), Dutch Basketball Association (NBB), Dutch Ski Association (NSkiV), Dutch Table Tennis Association (NTTB) and the Dutch Volleyball Association (Nevobo).

In addition, about 40 different sports projects run annually, under which this budget is distributed. For example, a large contribution went to Disabled Sports Netherlands (Gehandicaptensport Nederland) to support the sports of wheelchair rugby, boccia and goalball. 

Finally, two Special Cruyff Courts were co-funded with proceeds from the 2023 14K edition. 

All in all, there were many, many childred who have been given the space to play sports because of the contributions of all the runners and main sponsors of the Cruyff Legacy 14K 2023.
