Swedwise sponsor Team Rynkeby 2016

Team Rynkeby 2016 update: The Fight Against Child Cancer Continues

oktober 25, 2016 / ,

Team Rynkeby 2016 who are sponsored by Swedwise among others, has raised 18.9 million kronor for further cancer research and for children affected by cancer (barncancerfonden). During this year’s bike race to Paris, Team Rynkeby Värmland gathered 2.1 million kronor.

Swedwise is thrilled by this success, and to be able to contribute to Team Rynkeby’s efforts. ”As part of our charitable work Swedwise is proud to sponsor Team Rynkeby’s work,” said Roger Wall, CEO Swedwise.

Every year, Team Rynkeby cycles to Paris for the benefit of children with cancer and their families. ”It’s great that we managed to collect so much money,” said Dick Söderberg, Captain of Rynkeby Värmland. ”All contributions, large and small are important for children and their families.”

Most of the money will go into funding 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,” said Mattias Nord, CEO of Visit Karlstad who personally coordinates the sponsorship of Team Rynkeby, Värmland.

Together, we can fight against cancer, and together we can make a difference!
