Limassol, Cyprus, August 14, 2019
Alpe d’Huzes Foundation Chairman Jan Kouwenhoven, on behalf of the Board of Directors, sent an official appreciation letter to Carbo One Limited for sponsorship of a biking team from the Netherlands, which participated in the Alpe d’HuZes charity race on 06 June 2019 to raise funds for the Dutch Cancer Society (KWF Kankerbestrijding).
Jan Kouwenhoven, chairman of Alpe d’HuZes: “Alpe d’HuZes 2019 was once again an unprecedented success. A total of at least 4,700 participants cycled and walked around the Alpe d’Huez. Interest towards our event continues to grow.
Although all fundraising campaigns continue until the end of September, we were able to announce at the end of the racing day that we had collected a huge amount of 11.8 million Euros, which is 500,000 euros more than last year. Every euro donated to the Alpe d’HuZes/KWF Fund goes directly and 100% to cancer research.
We are well aware that we can achieve this unique goal only thanks to sponsors support. On behalf of the Board of Directors of Alpe d’HuZes and our volunteers, I would like to thank Carbo One Limited for the warm support and fantastic cooperation with confidence I will meet you again at our 15th Alpe d’HuZes next year”.
Carbo One for its part is grateful to Alpe d’Huzes Foundation for the opportunity to assist the fundraising campaign for the Dutch Cancer Society and looks forward to continue supporting this noble mission aimed at cancer research, finding new innovative medicines and medical technologies for improving the quality of life of people with cancer and saving humans lives.
