CCC Team has presented its partnership with Unicef. The formation is the first Polish company to become a Unicef global partner.

"CCC Team for Unicef" was officially inaugurated in a press conference of the CCC Group headquarters in Warsaw, although it was formally established in November of 2018. The partnership will run for four years and the team will be helping children around reach their full potential, through education and other holistic programmes.

The team will display the Unicef logo on the front of the CCC Team Jersey and "CCC Team rides for more with Unicef" on the back. In addition and as a sign of solidarity with the partnership, CCC Team riders and staff will also wear cyan blue "CCC Team for Unicef" wristbands.

"We are proud that the CCC Group has decided to become a partner of Unicef and get involved in helping children around the world," said Marek Krupinski, Executive Director of Unicef Poland. "The cooperation with CCC Team is unique because it is the first sports partnership with a cycling group in the history of Unicef. If we converted the number of kilometres cycled by the CCC Team cyclists during the Tour de France, it would be equal to USD 27,680 as the support for Unicef."

"Thanks to such funds, the organization could provide school backpacks, textbooks and one year of education for 800 children. We are extremely delighted that the CCC Group's support will help drive real change for children all around the world, where, and when it is needed the most. Thank you very much for your commitment! I am convinced that together we will be able to help thousands of children."

For CCC Team it is an honour to represent Unicef on the international cycling stage. "We are proud to represent Unicef at the WorldTour level," explained the CCC Team's General Manager Jim Ochowicz. "It is incredibly humbling to support a global charity of Unicef's calibre and raise awareness of their work, both through partnership activations and by displaying the Unicef logo on our jerseys and team vehicles throughout the season.

"We look forward to supporting Unicef and doing our part to help improve the lives of children around the world."

For Dariusz Milek, President of the Management Board of CCC S.A., this is a cooperation that fits well with the company. "CCC has been supporting the people most at in need for years, and a partnership with a global organization, such as Unicef, perfectly corresponds with the dynamic and international development of the company," he commented. "As a footwear company, we are already one of the European leaders, but this year my other dream is being fulfilled – CCC Team is the first Polish cycling team to compete at the prestigious UCI WorldTour level.

"I'm really keeping my fingers crossed for the successes of our riders who will bike to get something more than fame and titles in races around the world. Thanks to the "CCC TEAM FOR Unicef" partnership, they will be additionally motivated by how Unicef is driving change for children every day, across the globe."
