On 20 June 2013, DNS Belgium and Close the Gap organised the third edition of ‘Bike To Close the Gap’. This was a sporting event where the very best in the Belgian ICT world biked to close the digital gap.
Bike to Close the Gap is an event where cyclists compete against each other to conquer the renowned Paterberg in the Flemish Ardennes. They received sponsorship from their employers, this time not for each lap, but by means of a total package.

Thanks to DNS Belgium, PC Solidarity can support to some 100 Belgian organisations working in the domain of professional integration of underprivileged groups.
Also Bart Aernouts and Joyce Vanderbeken participated to support Bike to Close the Gap. In total 276 cyclists collected about € 70.500 euro on the Paterberg. The weather was great so the atmosphere was superb.
This made the third edition of this CSR event a gigantic success!
