Team “Cherry-Tea” on the Way up North for a Good Cause

They got to know and appreciate the work of a palliative care team at first hand and simply wanted to say thank you to them. But from the fixed idea, a concrete plan was created. Anja Kleyboldt and Markus Bitter from Friedrichsdorf participate as team no. 80 “Cherry-Tea” in the “Baltic Sea Circle”, the most northern rally on earth.

With an old Opel Sintra they have to conquer the way all around the Baltic Sea from Hamburg via Denmark, Sweden, Lapland and Norway to the North Cape, over the Lofoten through the Finnish Pampa, the Baltic States and Poland back to Hamburg – all in 16 day.

However, the “Baltic Sea Circle” is not about speed, only the experience is of primary importance. The 250 participating teams obtain various tasks to solve during the stages. At the same time, participants learn about countries and cultures on this journey through the hinterland – navigation systems and motorways are forbidden.

An essential point of this adventure trip is of course besides the ferry trip on stormy seas, the photo shooting with a moose, the natural spectacles and the prevailing loneliness in particular getting to know the people there.

Despite the adventures, all the teams of this unusual rally commit themselves to collect 750.00 Euros for a good cause. For Anja Kleyboldt and Markus Bitter a clear matter: All donations are earmarked for the palliative care of people. With this they would like to say thank you for the great support on caring for the mother.

At SAF-HOLLAND we think that this is a great thing, and are really happy to support this fundraising campaign.
