There are many types of vacation. Beach, hiking or cycling to Paris. Tore Medhaug from Profitbase does the latter. Profitbase is a sponsor of Team Rynkeby, a Nordic charity cycle team that cycles every year to Paris. In addition to practicing for over a year in order to cycle the 1300 miles to Paris – they also commits themselves to the effort of raising money for children with cancer and their families.
The money that Team Rynkeby collects in Norway goes to research on child cancer. So far Team Rynkeby Rogaland has collected 2 million NOK through sponsors and private. Last year Team Rynkeby Rogaland collected 1.6 million NOK and 6 million in Norway in total. The goal for this year is to collect over 8 million NOK.
More than 450 Norwegian children is affected by cancer before the age of 15 – every fifth child does not survive the disease. It causes child cancer to be the most mortal disease among children aged 1-15 years in Norway. About half of the children who survive a cancer disease do so with different types of sequences. There may be concentration problems, amputated limbs, childlessness and major brain injuries.
Profitbase appreciates the work Team Rynkeby does for the Children Cancer Society and wishes our own cyclist Tore Medhaug good luck on his journey to Paris.
The trip will start at the National Hospital in Oslo on Saturday, July 8th and arriving in Paris on 15th of July.
