Team Rynkeby Vestegnen (Copenhagen West), including Holm & Halby’s CEO, Morten Dyrner, has worked really hard throughout autumn and winter in the bicycle saddle and not least with the important work of raising money for critically ill children.
The work and physical training were supposed to have culminated in the beginning of July when Team Rynkeby was to have cycled the more than 1,400 km to Paris. But due to corona-related restrictions, this year's trip was cancelled.
But even though there is no cycling tour to Paris this year, there is no stopping the enthusiasts on Team Rynkeby.
Throughout autumn and winter, Morten Dyrner and his fellow teammates have been sweating it out in the bicycle saddle and have devoted their time to the important work of raising money for critically ill children. Efforts that Holm & Halby has decided to support again this year via a Gold sponsorship for Team Rynkeby Vestegnen (Copenhagen West).
However, the bike riders will not see their hard work and many months of training culminate before next year. This is because the Team Rynkeby Foundation decided already in April to postpone this year’s bicycle tour to Paris to 2021 due to corona virus restrictions.
All bike riders have been offered a spot on next year’s team, and Team Rynkeby Vestegnen (Copenhagen West) has taken efforts to organise a joint bicycle tour at a weekend in August when the team will be touring in Denmark.
The important work of raising money will of course continue even though the bicycle tour has been postponed. We are looking forward to seeing the total amount of money that the Team Rynkeby Foundation will be able to give to ill children in September.
In 2019, Team Rynkeby donated DKK 79.3 million to organisations that help children who suffer from critical illnesses. Of this sum, DKK 29.4 million went to the Danish Childhood Cancer Foundation and the Danish Lung Foundation for Children (Børnelungefonden).
It is not too late if you or your company would like to contribute to the fight against childhood cancer. It is still possible to donate money to Team Rynkeby Vestegnen (Copenhagne West) via MobilePay to: 46231
