To advance the ZEPA Challenge initiative, we founded the ZEPA Challenge Foundation in Zeist on 28 December 2015 with the aim of collecting funds and donations for charitable causes. All the proceeds go to the charitable cause.
We also participated in this challenge in 2016. This time, we cycled from Zeist to Paris to raise funds for two organisations that offer assistance to child refugees in the Netherlands: Wereldkidz Vrije Vogel and Stichting YOIN. We far exceeded our target and raised a total of € 30,000 for the projects of both organisations.
The 3rd edition of the ZEPA Challenge took place on May 23, 2019. With blood, sweat and tears, Enigma has cycled a route of 577 kilometers to Paris for the charity YOIN. Thanks to the contribution of all donors, an amount of €18,235 has been raised for unaccompanied minor refugees in the Netherlands.
