GenDx is proud to be an official sponsor of Transplantoux, a 3-day bicycle tour organized by Donerik & Friends and University Medical Center Groningen (UMCG) for organ-, stem cell- recipients and donors.

This action has been initiated in 2008 by transplantation centers in Gent and Leuven, Belgium. Since 2015 the UMCG in the Netherlands has joined the initiative and now organizes it on the annual basis. By conducting this annual event, organizers promote the active and healthy lifestyle for the transplanted ex-patients or donors. The recreational club proves that when there is a will, there is a way.

On 10 June, a number of participants of Transplantoux cycled the “Elfstedentocht” a long-distance tour that includes eleven historical cities of the Netherlands. On 19 June, a group of 60 cyclists will cycle to reach the peak of Mont Ventoux.

We wish them the best of luck!
