CADMATIC sponsored Team Rynkeby
Posted on May 14, 2019
CADMATIC has sponsored Team Rynkeby, a Nordic charity cycling team. Every summer Team Rynkeby cycles to Paris to raise money for seriously ill children.
Team Rynkeby was founded in 2002 when 11 amateur cyclists, associated with Rynkeby Foods A/S, decided to cycle to Paris to see the final stage of the Tour de France. Team Rynkeby donated their profits to the children's cancer unit at Odense University Hospital. A tradition was born!
Today's Team Rynkeby comprises 2,100 cyclists and 500 volunteers, divided into 54 local teams in Denmark, Sweden, Finland, Norway, the Faroe Islands, Iceland, and Germany.
For almost a whole year participants must not only prepare themselves for the 1,200 kilometers trip to Paris but they are also obliged to do what they can to raise money for children with critical illnesses.
In 2018 Team Rynkeby donated EUR 9.4 million to organizations that help children with critical illnesses.
