80 intrepid teams of rowers recently descended upon Dusseldorf’s media harbor for the annual charity regatta hosted by the Düsseldorf am Ruder & Germania Düsseldorf 1904 rowing clubs in association with Northrhine Westphalia Cancer Society. Flokk were one of several sponsors of the days event, which saw an exciting array of crews compete in a series of races along the Rhine, raising vital funds for charity.

On 2nd September, a glorious late summer’s day, 80 teams made up of colleagues, students, friends and family took to the River Rhine to raise awareness and funds for charity. For many fancy dress was the order of the day, and a riot of colour and costumes brought a smile to many faces.

“From start to end we had such a great day” said René Sitter, Country Manager for Flokk Germany “We at Flokk are passionate about creating work environments in which people are active, feel good and inspire them to do something special together in a team. We constantly talk about how “Movement is life”, and today, seeing people rowing for cancer, encapsulates this message perfectly. The positive response from everyone involved today is truly inspiring, and we are so happy to be a part of this fantastic event, with some inspirational people. Well done to everyone who came out today.”

Throughout the day a variety of races took place, with teams split into groups based on age and ability. Prizes were awarded for winning races as well as stylish racing, with teams awarded for their fashion sense and costume design. A team of green fairies were the lucky ones to pick up the Flokk prize, with each of the team given the chance to customise their very own HÅG Capisco Puls in our showroom, before taking it home with them!

The event was a huge success, and although funds raised are still being counted, they have already surpassed those raised last year, making it not only a great day of fun, but one that will make a real difference to hundreds of cancer victims in Germany.
