Ride for ALL

A bike tour for the fight against leukemia!

About Us

What is behind the motivation to

"Ride for ALL"?

The fate of my wife Alicia, who unfortunately developed 2019 Acute lymphatic leukemia (ALL) and lost her battle against blood cancer, motivates me to do this. I was allowed to accompany Alicia on her difficult journey and learn so much from her in the process. So I want to share her story and tell you about this serious illness ...

Donation goal

Leukemia knows no national borders - the means to cure this, unfortunately, do. Medical advances are making leukemia more and more curable, but unfortunately these treatments are not available to all sufferers in the world. It was therefore a special concern and dearest wish for Alicia to be active for leukemia patients in South America, her home continent, after her recovery. Also the DKMS is active in Chile ...

Once across Europe - 4.500 KM for ALL

  1. Acute lymphatic leukemia (ALL) was the doctor's diagnosis in April 2019 when my wife Alicia fell ill. An aggressive form of blood cancer that Alicia had to fight and a fight that she sadly lost in the end. 

All over the world, numerous people develop blood cancer every minute - in Germany alone every 12 minutes. Often only a stem cell donation will help them. Alicia very much wished that as many people as possible could be given the hope of a second life.

The DKMS is also dedicated to this fight against all forms of a disease of the blood-forming system - all over the world and also in South America, Alicia's home continent. I would like to make a small contribution in loving memory of Alicia with this charity bike tour to Lisbon and therefore ask for your support. 

April 3, 2022 I left, our little Maltese dog Bruno accompanies me and ensures that many hearts and smiles fly towards us on our journey - just as Alicia's smile opened many doors and warmed hearts.... I'm on my way and I hope to arrive in Lisbon soon!

Everyone can be a lifesaver - every euro helps!
