Team Rynkeby raises 9.7 million euros for seriously ill children
The European charity cycling initiative Team Rynkeby, which has been supported by the Eckes-Granini Group as a partner and main sponsor since 2016, collects donations for good causes every year. Due to the ongoing Corona pandemic and the resulting cancellation of the season highlight, a joint tour to Paris, the country teams organized regional tours again this season. 2,057 cyclists and 457 volunteers, distributed among 59 local teams in Denmark, Sweden, Norway, Finland, the Faroe Islands, Iceland, Germany and Switzerland were able to achieve a remarkable fundraising result during the national tours. Over the past 20 years, Team Rynkeby has raised just over 75.4 million euros for good causes.
"The teams have shown another year with how much commitment they have for seriously ill children. With a lot of passion and flexibility, the cyclists and suppoters were able to achieve a really great result for a good cause," says Tim Berger, CEO of the Eckes-Granini Group.
