Giving 100 percent for children with cancer
It is the 15th time that Team Rynkeby cycling to Paris to raise money for children with cancer and their families. The cycle team consists this year of 1600 cyclists and 400 service participants divided into 38 teams in five countries; Denmark, Sweden, Norway, Finland and the Faroe Islands. Participants pay for their own participation and Team Rynkeby cover the project’s corporate overheads, which means that all the money the participants collect will go to one of the five pediatric cancer organizations as Team Rynkeby cooperates with the Nordic countries.
“Most of the money goes to fund research into childhood cancer. Childhood cancer remains the disease that takes the most lives of children aged 1-15 years and there are too many children who have serious side effects of the treatment”, says Mattias Nord, CEO VisitKarlstad, who is personally coordinating the sponsorship of Team Rynkeby Värmland.
Team Rynkeby collected 61.3 million crowns for children with cancer overall in the entire Nordic region 2015- from 13.4 million went to the Children’s Cancer Foundation of Sweden. The team will cycle to Paris from the 9th to 10th and 16th July 2016.
Team Rynkeby every year cycles to Paris for the benefit of children with cancer and their families. As the largest charity cycling team, Team Rynkeby cycling to Paris in summer 2016 to support the fight against childhood cancer, we are on Swedwise proud to contribute to their work.
