Cycling adventure from Antwerp to Amsterdam: the first Tour d'Armonia against childhood cancer

11 October 2023

Friday 22 September 2023 was a special day for Armonia Benelux: colleagues from Receptel and bouwens& rode together the very first Tour d'Armonia, an impressive bike ride against child cancer.

No fewer than 15 employees and partners cycled from Antwerp to Amsterdam (partly or completely). Together they collected no less than €25,547! We lovingly divided this amount between the Princess Máxima Centre in the Netherlands and the Children's Cancer Fund in Belgium.

The adventure began with seven cyclists in Antwerp, three of whom crossed the border at Essen and cycled on at a brisk pace to the Prinses Máxima Centre in Utrecht. There, eight colleagues hooked up. What a ride, together through the beautiful Dutch countryside.... Flat tyres, minor collisions - nothing could stop them. At a little past seven, the whole group arrived at the bouwens& headquarters in Amsterdam, where family and friends had gathered to cheer them on.

This successful event would not have been possible without the support of our sponsors: we would like to sincerely thank Voormedia, Clipforce, Sjoeche, Nieuwenhuis, CleanBuilding and for their support. And of course also our cyclists! Together, we strive for a hopeful future for all young cancer patients.
