Together We Can Make a Difference.
We take wide-ranging and constant participation in the development and advancement of local communities, and as one of our several charity initiatives, Chestnut Hill Farms proudly sponsors Team Lund and their participation in the fight against Children’s Cancer. Team Rynkeby is a Nordic charity cycling team that rides to Paris each summer to raise money for seriously ill children. We decided to sponsor Team Rynkeby because we feel it is appropriate to expand our social responsibility projects to the areas where our fruit is shipped, and are proud to support their effort.
Team Rynkeby is comprised of 1,900 cyclists and 450 volunteers, and is divided into 48 local teams in Denmark, Sweden, Finland, Norway, the Faroe Islands and Iceland. Team members are selected from thousands of applicants. For almost a whole year participants must not only prepare themselves for the 1,200 kilometre trip to Paris but they are also obliged to do what they can to raise money for children with critical illnesses.
In 2017, Team Rynkeby donated EUR 8.8 million to organizations that help children with critical illnesses.
