Cycling for Laurin as part of the Million Dollar Bike Ride

from | June 14, 2021

Within the framework of the Million Dollar Bike Ride (MDBR) we started a donation campaign in favor of BPAN at our home in the garden. Friends, relatives and acquaintances were invited to come by with their bikes and bring a donation. In return, we served freshly baked pizza from the wood-fired oven and drinks. Throughout the day we had about 60 guests and many had actually come by bike. Some we hadn't seen in a long time and so we had a wonderful day with great weather under our chestnut tree. Thanks to a brilliant teamwork and because not all guests were there at once, the day was very relaxed for all involved - many thanks to all small and big helpers! So I had enough time to talk to the guests about BPAN and to tell them about our association work at Hoffnungsbaum . Laurin also enjoyed the little hustle and bustle and in the evening not only the bellies were full, but also our donation box - a total of just over 3000 €, which was donated to Hoffnungsbaum e.V. to the NBIA Disorders Association (NBIA DA). to the USA, where it will go into the worldwide Million Dollar Bike Ride donation pot, which will then be doubled by the University of Pennsylvania, because the $20,000 mark has already been passed! Many, many thanks to all who participated and we look forward to next year!

By the way: You can still donate by bank transfer, because we will transfer the total amount to the USA only at the end of June:
