Langenfeld, Germany. 28 May 2008 – arcplan, an international provider of Enterprise Performance Management solutions, is supporting a good cause as a sponsor of the Global Biking Initiative. The fundraising event is a cycle race that takes place between 28 May and 2 June. The route runs from Dusseldorf in Germany to Newbury in England, a distance of some 700 kilometers (about 435 miles), and is divided into six stages. Dominique Donné, a Key Account Manager at arcplan, is participating in the race to support the charity’s work.

Donations in aid of the Off Road Kids charity
The goal of the Global Biking Initiative, which is being sponsored by a number of other companies including Vodafone, is to collect donations for Off Road Kids. This non-profit organization helps children living on the streets in Germany to make positive changes for their future. The Global Biking Initiative also aims to draw attention to the importance of children in today’s society.

Over 50 people cycling for a good cause
More than 50 cyclists will set out from Germany on 28 May and make their way to Newbury via Maastricht, Brussels, Lille, Canterbury and London. Every day, they will be joined by riders participating in a single stage. Cyclists covering stretches of between 71 and 129 kilometers will have the opportunity to publicize their support of this good cause along the way. The date of the event has been carefully chosen, as 1 June is International Children’s Day.
