Fuel card service provider DKV Euro Service Benelux is celebrating its 30th anniversary this year. As part of the celebrations, DKV employees will be participating in this year’s Alpe d’HuZes on June 7 2018 - an event in which participants either run, walk or cycle in order to ascend the legendary French Alpe d’Huez - to raise money for cancer relief.
This year DKV is sending two teams, 12 employees in total, to climb Alpe d’Huez, one of the main Tour de France mountains. DKV Euro Service will give each team the time to prepare, raise sponsor funds and eventually ascend the summit. Each member of the teams will bring his or her own story, setting out the motivation to take up this challenge.
Gertjan Breij, Managing Director of DKV Euro Service Benelux, said: “DKV Euro Service Benelux celebrates its 30th anniversary this year and we wish to share this cherished moment as much as possible with the community that surrounds us.
“We are convinced of the necessity to look beyond the world of transport in order to make a difference. To our customers we wish to be a reliable, innovative service provider that also accounts for its corporate social responsibility. This is the reason why our DKV slogan has been extended from its original ‘You drive, we care’ to include ‘We walk, we care!’ and ‘We cycle, we care’.
“Together we aim to come up with the best result possible. Any contributions will be more than welcome to enable us to raise our envisaged € 2,500 - minimum per participant. All of us are very eager and devoted to embark on this journey and to successfully ascend Alpe D’Huez several times on June 7.”
