Soendgen donates to children suffering from cancer

The "Pre-tour" makes a stop in Adendorf

Adendorf. The "Pre-tour" – a team of VIPS fighting against cancer – cycles from "Waldbreitbach over Bornheim and Bonn to the Soendgen Keramik GmbH in Adendorf and further on over Meckenheim to Bad Neuenahr-Ahrweiler. "The fight against cancer needs private commitment, we too want to help," emphasizes Björn Hansen, Managing Director of Soendgen Keramik GmbH and presents a considerable sum for the good cause on behalf of all employees.

In 1996 Jürgen Grünewald, the then mayor of Bad Neuenahr-Ahrweiler, founded the "Pre-tour" as the starting point for the big "Tour of Hope", in order to raise awareness for the needs of children with cancer. This year's Pre-tour will take the group of 120 participants under the patronage of Petra Behle (Olympic Winner and World Champion in biathlon) to Koblenz and Gießen; also taking part are VIPS from sport, politics and business.
