WCA TEAM COMPLETES RIDELONDON CYCLE CHALLENGE TO RAISE FUNDS FOR WAR CHILD


The team of ten WCA members and staff raised more than USD6,000 after completing the 100-mile (161km) Prudential RideLondon cycle challenge

London, UK, Wednesday 14th August 2019 – A team of WCA members and staff from around the world have completed the Prudential RideLondon 100-mile (161km) cycle challenge to raise more than USD6,000 (GBP5,000) for the international charity, War Child.

All ten of WCA’s riders completed the course – which included two significant climbs in Surrey Hills, Surrey, UK – alongside 25,000 other cyclists, and the ride was a significant accomplishment for many on the team.

“I am extremely proud and honoured to have ridden with our members and staff in this event,” said Dan March, Chief Executive Officer (CEO), WCA.

“The charity does great work in helping injured and orphaned children around the world and helps rebuild communities, as well as provide essential infrastructure.”

War Child works to support children in conflict areas long after the TV cameras have gone home by keeping children safe, giving them an education, and equipping them with skills for future success.

“War Child is striving for a world where children’s lives are no longer torn apart by war, and we work to protect, educate, and stand up for the rights of children caught up in conflict,” said Sarah Robertson, Spokeswoman, War Child.

“We aim to reach children as early as possible when conflict breaks out, and stay to support them through their recovery, which is made possible through support and fundraising from organisations like WCA.”

The money gathered by WCA’s RideLondon team will go towards War Child’s ongoing efforts to support some 123,000 children in nine countries.

The network members on the cycle team were Frederic Mercier, Sales and Network Manager, Mathez Transports Internationaux; Brett Frederiksen, Sales Manager, DN Freight; Paulo Ferreira, Founder and CEO, Multicargo; Edwin van Saarloos, General Manager, IAA International Airfreight Associates; Sam Yauner, Managing Director, and Rob Donald, Sales and Marketing Director, Corten Logistics.

The WCA staff that completed the challenge were Dan March, CEO; Chris Dunn, Regional Manager, Middle East; Edwin van der Genugten, Regional Manager, Europe; Adam McKenna, General Manager, Perishables, Time Critical, Pharma.

The ride would not have been possible without the support of Brendan Beech, Director – Global Network and Business Development at UK-based WCA member Maltacourt Global Logistics, who arranged transport and logistics for the team.

WCA is still collecting contributions and donations can be made by visiting the team fundraiser page.

Our Vision

The objective of SESAR is to modernise European ATM by defining, developing and delivering new or improved technologies and procedures (SESAR Solutions).

SESAR’s vision builds on the notion of trajectory-based operations’ and relies on the provision of air navigation services (ANS) in support of the execution of the business or mission trajectory — meaning that aircraft can fly their preferred trajectories without being constrained by airspace configurations.

SESAR Deployment Manager

The SESAR Deployment Manager (SDM) function is defined by the Article 9 of Commission Implementing Regulation (EU) N°409/2013. Under the oversight of the European Commission, the SDM function consists of the synchronisation and the coordination of the deployment of the Common Projects. A Common Project is a Commission Implementing Regulation which mandates the implementation of the most essential operational changes in the European ATM Master Plan by the Member States of the European Union and their operational stakeholders. The first Common Project is known as the Pilot Common Project (PCP) and is defined by the Regulation (EU) N°716/2014. The SDM synchronises and coordinates implementation against the SESAR Deployment Programme which is a project view of the Common Projects organizing their implementation into optimum sequences of activities by all the stakeholders required to implement. To develop and maintain the SESAR Deployment Programme in close consultation with all the stakeholders is another important task under the SDM function.
