Pedalling for a good cause

“Together for a good cause – you donate, we pedal!” Under this motto, over 600 people took part in the 24-hour indoor cycling marathon organised by the bicycle club ‘R.C. Radlexpress Feucht e.V.’ on 4th and 5th February 2012. Lots of money was raised for the food bank ‘Nürnberger Tafel e.V.’. Nine participants from the Memmert team kept their cycles almost constantly on the move and Memmert managing director Christiane Riefler-Karpa personally donated an additional 500 € for the good cause.

Like many other initiatives nationwide, the non-profit organisation ‘Nürnberger Tafel e.V.' collects food from fruit and vegetable wholesalers, bakers, butchers and retail stores and distributes it to those in need. Of course, it was an honour for the Memmert sport team to take part in the 5th Indoor-Cycling-Marathon along with 49 other teams and two individual starters. During the many hours of pedalling for a good cause, those taking part had the opportunity to do something for their fitness and at the same time talk with colleagues and the other participants about their enjoyment, suffering and aching muscles. After a strenuous day and a very long night, some 6,000 € was collected for the ‘Nürnberger Tafel’.

By the way, the non-profit organisation also has its own donations account and is pleased to receive support of any kind.
