Malta, June 2012: IIG Bank (Malta) has confirmed its support to the organizers of LifeCycle as a Platinum Sponsor of The LifeCycle Challenge 2012, which this year will take 45 cyclists on the long road all the way from Brisbane to Melbourne, Australia, 2000km in just 11 days, in their bid to raise funds for their dedicated cause. The sponsorships collected will go to acquiring a Plasma Electroforated Machine for renal patients.
LifeCycle Organisation's mission statement is to help renal patients have a better quality of life with various initiatives including a number of outings and pilgrimage trips abroad to Lourdes. Due to their medical condition, patients are accompanied by nursing staff that are vital to assist the patients whilst abroad.
Last year nearly €120,000 were collected from a number of companies and individuals, funds which were dedicated to the purchase of specialist equipment, a CRRT machine for use by renal patients. This annual event keeps LifeCycle alive in its mission to work in the community offering care for renal patients in many ways, including retaining a top dietitian on a part-time basis so as to help renal patients get a better grasp of how to manage their diets.
