Donations for a Van Raam side-by-side tandem Fun2Go

Two seventeen-year-old students have collected 1000 euros in donations for a Tandem foundation during their cycling trip on a Van Raam side-by-side tandem Fun2Go. Read more about these donations and other success stories about donations for a Van Raam side-by-side tandem Fun2Go.

Students on a side-by-side tandem receive donations

On rp-Online, a German website, we found a great summer adventure. Two students are both at an international school in North Rhine-Westphalia (a province in Germany) and in the summer they decided to make a five-day charity tour through the Benelux of 261 kilometres on a Van Raam Fun2Go side-by-side tandem. They liked the activity for charity very much, also because of the strong support of their parents. The trip went well. Finally, the students recommend such an action to anyone who loves cycling.
The Tandem foundation was very happy with the donation and was able to buy a new double rider cycle.

The students are already invited to other events of the Tandem foundation. The students are of course very happy with that. Unfortunately this was a one-off event for both of them, because they will graduate from high school next year and then start their studies.
