Trackntrace sponsors the Children's Cancer Fund and becomes the active long-term partner of the Ride of Hope.
Childhood Cancer Foundation is run entirely by donations from individuals and businesses, and get no contribution from either the state, municipality or county. Since its startup in 1982, the Children's Cancer Foundation contributes to research in pediatric cancer by more than a billion dollars. The direct contact with cancer-affected children and parents is done through six regional children's cancer clinics. Together, childhood cancer clinics and the Children's Cancer Foundation work effectively with both direct efforts at the local level and with general issues in research, care and education and information.
Ride of Hope is a way to raise money for the fund. Ride of Hope has completed the race Lund to Stockholm since 2008 with great success and the goal has been to build a charity run with much emotion and joy.
