Cycling for Sophia 2023 Charity Event

Rotterdam - Netherlands


February 2023

We could not be prouder to be part of a project! Cycling for Sophia 2023 was a charity event that took place in the Sophia Children's Hospital for children which is situated in Rotterdam, the Netherlands.

On Feb. 11 and 12, over a hundred people came together to complete a cycling challenge in order to raise money for the charity cause of 2023, which was the Centre for Rare Diseases. All of this was organized by the Friends of Sophia foundation.

As many as 1 million people in the Netherlands will suffer from a rare disease in their lifetime and about 80% of these diseases affect children. Over 7,000 rare diseases have been identified, most of which are hereditary or congenital. Many of these conditions are unknown to doctors. It's partly because of this, that early recognition is difficult, which often leads to late diagnosis. In addition, for many of these diseases no treatment leading to a cure is yet available. As a result, approximately 14,000 children die every year. provided the 100 stationary bikes that were required in order to complete this amazing challenge.

We delivered, installed and later collected the spinning bikes and made sure the organizers and participants in this charity event had nothing else to worry about apart from raising money for this wonderful charity cause!

And the results are worth mentioning: over €455,000 was raised that day!
