Ciena Charity Bike Ride Raises over £3,510 for KidsOut!

KidsOut are happy to announce that the Ciena 2019 Partner Bike Ride raised a fantastic1 £3,510 for the charity’s work in providing positive experiences to the UK’s most disadvantaged children! Ciena is a leading supplier of telecommunications networking equipment, software, and services, and has been a major supporter of KidsOut for many years.

On Friday 14th June 2019, participants in the Ciena’s second charity cycling event traversed the picturesque Chiltern Hills in West London, enjoying a great day out cycling, making valuable connections, and creating unforgettable memories. This one-day event included cycling on countryside roads and provided a fun and challenging ride for all abilities, with two distances to choose from: 70 or 110 kilometres.

2KidsOut’s Chief Ambassador, Julian Margolin, was blown away by the endeavours of the Ciena team. “A bike ride of that distance is quite a feat in itself. To have raised a fantastic amount of money for KidsOut in the process makes it a phenomenal achievement! From all of us at KidsOut, I would like to say thank you for this very generous contribution to our work. Your support will go a long way to bringing fun and happiness to children all over the UK!”

KidsOut would like to reiterate our gratitude to everyone who took part in the Ciena bike ride. £3,510 is an amazing amount raised and will help hundreds of disadvantaged children.

KidsOut welcomes donations from charity company events and is always extremely grateful for any contributions. We also host events throughout year, such as corporate networking galas, runs and, more locally, quiz nights.
