Shimano Europe donates €50,000 to Make A Wish Foundation

Shimano Europe Group has donated €50,000 to the Netherlands branch of the Make A Wish Foundation.

Every year, Shimano asks its employees to suggest which charity they think should benefit from a donation and this year management picked the idea of Andre Branten, Sr. Finance & EBS Manager.

Make-A-Wish fulfills wishes of children between 3 and 18 years old that have a life threatening disease. Since 1989 they fulfilled the wishes of more than 4,000 sick children. With the donation Make-A-Wish is able to fulfill the wishes of numerous little children.
