On 30 June 2017 a group of 14 EMBL cyclists set off on an epic ride from Heidelberg to EMBL Grenoble over five days. Their goal is to raise money for the Kinderplanet, a charity that supports the families of children treated at the Heidelberg University Hospital. As the Kindergarten relies solely on donations in order to operate, their mission is to help Kinderplanet in supporting families of sick children.
30 June – 4 July 2017
5 days – 850 km distance – 16.500 m ascent
By completing this physically and mentally demanding cycling challenge they hope to spread the word about Kinderplanet charity and encourage our colleagues, friends and family members to donate for a great cause.
Almut Lütge and Mike Smith from the Huber Group are taking part in this epic ride!
