Cycling for Laurin as part of the Million Dollar Bike Ride

from | June 14, 2021

As part of the Million Dollar Bike Ride (MDBR) we launched a fundraising campaign in our garden at home in aid of BPAN. Friends, relatives and acquaintances were invited to come by on their bikes and make a donation. In return, we served freshly baked pizza from the wood-fired oven and drinks. We had around 60 guests throughout the day and many of them actually came by bike. We hadn't seen some of them for a long time, so we had a wonderful day in great weather under our chestnut tree. Thanks to brilliant teamwork and the fact that not all the guests were there at once, the day was very relaxed for everyone involved - many thanks to all the helpers, big and small! This gave me enough time to talk to the guests about BPAN and tell them about our association's work at Hoffnungsbaum . Laurin also enjoyed the little hustle and bustle and in the evening not only were our bellies full, but also our donation box - a total of just over €3000, which went to the Hoffnungsbaum e.V. to the NBIA Disorders Association (NBIA DA) will be transferred to the USA, where they will then flow into the worldwide Million Dollar Bike Ride donation pot, which will then be doubled by the University of Pennsylvania, as the $ 20,000 mark has already been exceeded! Many, many thanks to everyone who took part and we look forward to next year!

By the way: donations can still be made by bank transfer, as we will not be transferring the total amount to the USA until the end of June:
