Caverion Finland’s head accountant Jonna Jumisko has figured out a way to combine exercise and charity. Jonna is participating for her second time in Team Rynkeby’s cycling trip to Paris.
The Nordic charity cycling team cycles to Paris every summer to raise money for children with cancer and their families. Jonna is motivated by her desire to help others and to test her own stamina.
Team Rynkeby comprises 1,650 cyclists and 400 volunteers, divided into 38 local teams in Denmark, Sweden, Finland, Norway and the Faroe Islands. Finland is participating with four teams and 140 cyclists.
Every penny helps children with cancer
For almost a whole year participants must not only prepare themselves for the 1,200 kilometre trip to Paris but they are also obliged to do what they can to raise money for children with cancer and their families.
Every cent that Team Rynkeby raises in each country goes to the local childhood cancer association in that country.
Team Finland officially starts its bike ride to Paris on Friday, July 8th at 12 noon.
