This year the annual Colt Bike Ride will for once take a different form: all Colt employees (« Colties ») will aim to cover a joint total distance of 100,000 km. And any form of sporting activity will count — from jogging, swimming to yoga, from road bike to a stationary machine in the gym.READ MORE
Problem We Are Trying to Solve
The global Covid situation means that the annual Colt Bike Ride can unfortunately not take place as usual this year. But this must not be an excuse for us to lose the habit of giving!
All Colties will be called upon to raise money through a personal sporting effort. And every single franc raised will be matched by the Colt Group — in other words, doubled.
How We Are Going To Do It
You are free to choose your sporting discipline. The main thing is that together we reach 100,000 km.
As in previous years, the money raised will go to the Swiss child cancer charity Kinderkrebshilfe Schweiz — https://www.kinderkrebshilfe.ch — to benefit affected children and their families.
Long Term Impact
These vital donations enable the association to offer not only financial support, but also advice, information and many activities. Parents are given hope, and their children gain access to activities which can improve their lives.
What We Need To Do
As a socially responsible business we support our employees and also many local organizations around the world through money-raising initiatives and volunteer work. Further information on our social commitment may be found at: http://colt.net/corporate-social-responsibility.
At the end of the campaign, the total amount of money raised will be doubled by the Colt Group. This means that each franc and every km will count. So the individual target of CHF 2,500 target should not be seen as just a guideline — the more the better!
Many thanks for your support!
