Some members of the LORENZ Team in North America gathered last Friday around Perkimon Creek, Pennsylvania to participate in a Plant-A-Thon. We picked the initiative given its proximity to our US office in Philadelphia, PA in an effort to give back to the local community and environment.

News from the LORENZ Charitable Foundation
The Summer Paralympics in Tokyo are only 4 weeks away (24 August) and our “golden boy” Vico Merklein is using his preparation for this next highlight in his career to support the charity run “Together around the world” by the UKE Hamburg (University Medical Center Hamburg-Eppendorf). Our LORENZ Charitable Foundation will donate money for every kilometer cycled by Vico. The 100-day UKE benefit run is dedicated to child protection in Hamburg and all proceeds will benefit children who are looked after at the children's competence center at the UKE in the event of domestic violence such as neglect or sexual abuse. The money donated by the LORENZ Charitable Foundation will go towards maritime equipment for children, such as a boat, beach chairs, ropes to learn knots, and much more. The aim of the charity run is to run, cycle, or swim the circumference of the earth along the equator, which corresponds to a distance of 40,075 kilometers. Thanks to people like Vico Merklein, this goal has already been surpassed, even though there are still 30 days left! More information on this project can be found here (in German).
