RCMA raised funds for BSF Indonesia in Lombok

30 Oct 2017

As part of RCMA’s commitment to corporate social responsibility, our employees participated in a cycle around Lombok from 18 to 22 October 2017 – “Giro Di Lombok”. The event, organised by the Bali Sports Foundation and co-sponsored by Rabobank, aimed to bring awareness to handcycling and sports for persons with disabilities. 7 employees from RCMA, 10 disabled athletes, and 12 other cyclists cycled around the island in a 3-day journey starting in the center, travelling past Mount Rinjani, along the north beach coastal road and down through the busy streets of Senggigi. The athletes received excited greetings from the locals, especially the schoolchildren who were fascinated by the handcycles. The route was tough with a few steep downhills and uneven roads but the team conquered it together. The funds raised went towards the further development of disabled sports in Indonesia and for the training of the athletes to hopefully represent Indonesia in the 2018 Asian Games to be held in Jakarta.
