The Challenge

Eschborn-Barneveld Challenge

September 1st 2015 was CRM Partners’s 10th birthday. We want to give back and what better way than supporting a foundation that’s centered around celebrating? We’ve all been younger and have our own special memories about celebrating our birthdays when we were younger. We know how important it is to celebrate and have fun.

After a very successful Eschborn-Barneveld Challenge in 2014 – when we raised €35.000,- for the Make-a-Wish Foundation – we thought it was time for a new challenge. This time, together with over 70 colleagues, we’ll bike and run 360 kilometers in two days, from our office in Germany to our office in The Netherlands. We want to make a difference for the Jarige Job Foundation by raising €50.000,-: that amount will provide 1.500 children with birthday boxes for a memorable birthday.

What we’ll do

Bike and run
Cyclists have chosen a distance of 180 kilometers, 135 kilometers, 90 kilometers, or 45 kilometers per day. The runners have chosen between 15 kilometers, 10 kilometers and 5 kilometers per day.

Business Challenge & Packing boxes
At the same time, another enthusiastic Challengers-team will crack an interesting Business Case, supporting the Jarige Job Foundation in a way centered around Customer Engagement. We’ll visit the Jarige Job Headquarters and help packing up birthday boxes.

We’re trying to collect objects and experiences to go up for auction. If you have items to donate, please email Herman at

Multiple partners have shown their generosity by donating to our cause:
