PWS SUPPORTS TEAM RYNKEBY
GOLD SPONSOR: Making a Real Impact for Children with Critical Illnesse
For many years, PWS has continuously supported Team Rynkeby as a proud gold sponsor. We want to make a real difference for children with critical illnesses.
ELEVEN CYCLISTS, A JOURNEY TO PARIS
Team Rynkeby originated in Denmark in 2002 when eleven cycling enthusiasts decided to embark on a journey to Paris to witness the conclusion of the prestigious cycling race "Tour de France." These cyclists, with connections to Rynkeby Foods, not only succeeded in recruiting the company as a sponsor but also donated the surplus to the pediatric oncology department at Odense University Hospital.
This event marked the beginning of an annually recurring tradition that has spread across the Nordic countries and grown to 62 teams with approximately 2000 dedicated amateur cyclists and 550 committed volunteers. Cyclists from Sweden and eight other countries are carefully selected from thousands of applications through the Team Rynkeby website. These chosen individuals commit not only to cycling an impressive 1200 km to Paris but also actively work to raise funds for the project.
WE SUPPORT CRITICALLY ILL CHILDREN
In Sweden, Team Rynkeby supports two significant organizations: the Childhood Cancer Foundation and the Children's Brain Foundation. At PWS, we are deeply committed to making a difference and are proud to sponsor Team Rynkeby in both Sweden and Denmark.
