A successful “Tour of Europe”
Mission accomplished! On August 1, the participants of the 2012 Jens Blatter fundraising marathon
reached their final destination on the Allalinhorn mountain, 4,027 meters above sea level. The 60
cyclists and their support teams had traveled almost 5,000 kilometers across the continent to get there,
passing through Switzerland, Germany, the Netherlands, Belgium, France and Italy in just 17 days on
their “Tour of Europe”. During the tour, the participants also stopped by the Bio-Seehotel Zeulenroda –
a company in the Bauerfeind Group. Together with Bauerfeind AG, the hotel donated EUR 1,000 to the
charity campaign. By the end of August, the total donations raised amounted to 150,000 Swiss francs.
The money raised by the fundraising tour will go toward the Eduplex children’s aid project in Pretoria,
which works to integrate children with hearing impairments into everyday school life.
