Carmelo Caruana Company Ltd has matched donations made by its staff to pledge its support to the Alive Charity Foundation’s 2015 Cycling Challenge for Cancer from the Alps to England earlier this month.
Carmelo Caruana Company’s agency director Darin Zahra was among 47 cyclists participating in the Alive2015 Cycling Challenge for Cancer across seven countries between July 9 and 18. The cyclists covered 1,110 kilometres in seven days, making their way from Liechtenstein to Switzerland, then on to Germany, France, Luxembourg to reach Belgium towards Sutton, England, their final destination.
Supported by Carmelo Caruana Company, Darin followed an intensive 16-week training programme in preparation for the challenge.
