Amsterdam to Frankfurt! Colt pedals for Coram
Published: Wednesday 13th August 2014
Over four days, a group of over 70 amateur cyclists and their support crew are taking part in a bike ride, which will see them cycle 550km for Coram and other charities supporting vulnerable children
The ride, taking place from the 5-8 September, will build on the success of the 2012/2013 events as the participants cycle the distance between the two European cities.
The challenge looks to raise more money than ever as the ambitious cyclists set themselves a higher target than the two previous years. To date, the team has ridden over 1,000km for charity, raising over €60,000. This year they hope to beat this amount all in one go.
Made up of a group from Dublin, Barcelona, Brussels, Frankfurt, Madrid, Milan, New York, Sibiu and Turin, the team will raise money to enhance the lives of children needing support from their own region, through their respective local charity partnerships. The Colt team from the UK is raising money for Coram to help vulnerable young people in London make the transition towards independence. They represent half of the group,targeting to raise €30,000.
Coram is the UK children’s charity that has been supporting vulnerable children for 275 years, now helping a million children and young people each year.
Colt Technology Services is an international telecommunications and IT services company and Colt UK employee voted Coram the company’s charity partner earlier this year.
