For the 3rd year running, Delta Wellness and Delta TechOps are proud to be collaborating to bring you Ride 4 the Fight. This premium, international cycling event will challenge Delta employees to test their physical and mental endurance whilst raising money for and awareness for cancer.
This year we are raising funds for Vzw Kinderkankerfonds, a Belgian charity that provides financial and psychological support to children with cancer and their families.
