With Heart and Wheel, we are going to help raise Euro 12,000.
Niek Visarius, ICE™ Lead Consultant Operational Excellence, is going on climbing the famous Mount Ventoux in France to raise some money to support people with Multiple Sclerosis (MS) and also to sponsor a research project. We would like to invite you to support Niek and his group by donating some money, so that they exceed their target of Euro 12,000 to help people with MS.
On 10th June 2018, Niek, with 11 other cyclists and 3 hikers, together with the organization ‘Climbing Against MS’, are going to reach the top of the Mount Ventoux. This group, who call themselves ‘Heart and Wheel’, are going to start from 2 different starting points: the hikers will start from Sault, which will take approximately 6 hours to reach the top and the cyclists will start at Bedoin, which will take 2 hours. The brave ones will make the attempt to attack the Mount Ventoux from 3 sides and will be biking and climbing, for at least 7 hours!
The reason Niek was interested to join and share this initiative with us, is because his close friend Christs’ wife Vivianne suffered from MS. About 6 years ago, Vivianne, got the first symptoms of MS. Her condition got worse ever since. Niek had felt like there was nothing he could do as a friend.
Now, Niek can do something! He and his group of friends can ride his bike to climb the steep mountain for Vivianne and other MS patients, and therefore, he also would like to ask you to join force with him and donate for MS. You can simply follow this link to give your donation, by clicking the button ‘Donate’ at ‘Climbing Against MS’ website.
All the money collected will be going to support selected projects that will definitely help MS patients now and in the future. ‘Climbing Against MS’ works closely with the existing MS organizations, such as the Dutch ‘Nationaal MS Fonds’ and MS Research. Their Advisory Board and Scientific Council will help to nominate projects to which funds raised will be allocated to. They will also do the final check on allocation of the funds.
Niek personally would like to say “with your support, we will be able to support MS and show to my friend that she is not alone. We will together cycle with Heart and Wheel!”

Update May, 4th 2018: Niek and his group, ‘Heart and Wheel’, have collected a little bit over Euro 15,000, exceeding their initial target. However, you can still give donation to help this cause by going to Climbing Against MS website. Thank you very much for your support.
