Yenlo, Premier Partner of WSO2, is very proud to support a local team of 10 cyclists from Alphen d’HuZes that will climb the Alpe d’Huez to raise money for the battle against cancer. A beautiful cause that is worth working up a sweat for. And the motto of Alpe d’HuZes says it all: “Never, ever quit!”!
Along with thousands of other cyclers, runners and hikers, the team that we’re sponsoring will climb the Alpe d’Huez up to six times on June 2. With the help of many sponsors they raised more then 30.000 euros for cancer research!
We wish the team all the best and a safe travel to the top!
About Alpe d’HuZes
Alpe d’HuZes is a Dutch initiative where bikers, runners and hikers raise money for the battle against cancer.
Alpe d’HuZes is a Dutch event in which one of the main mountains in the Tour de France, the Alpe d’Huez, is climbed by bikers, runners and hikers several times (up to six times!) in succession under the motto “Never, ever quit!”. The name, Alpe d’HuZes, is a combination of the Dutch word for “six” and the name of the Alpe d’Huez mountain.
The aim of the cycling event is to raise money for research into cancer. Alpe d’HuZes adheres to a strict no-overhead policy: the event runs on volunteers and all costs are borne by the participants themselves. Each euro donated will be one euro donated to the Dutch Cancer Society (KWF) / Alpe d’HuZes fund.
The mission of Alpe d’HuZes is to facilitate and inspire people to lead Happy and Healthy lives in Harmony with cancer. Its vision is to become the Dutch organisation that makes a real difference in and for the life of the cancer patient.
