Robin Halsebakk (26) spends his summer on a bike, riding from Grimstad to Kirkenes promoting the 2017 UCI Road World Championships in Bergen, while collecting money for cancer research. The «Salmon is important for Norway» campaign is the general sponsor for this year's world championship in Bergen and will also make their mark on all elite races in Norway. On the way to end destination, which is Nordkapp, he has travelled along fjords and beautiful nature visiting fish farms and aquaculture companies along the way to collect money for cancer research. In total, he will ride 4.500km and he has already surpassed 3.343km.

Wednesday, June 21, Robin took the time to come by AKVA group's office in Trondheim. So far, Robin has collected NOK 760.000 and AKVA group has decided to contribute with NOK 20.000 to this cause.

"This is a good initiative and an important cause. It is nice to see that so many from the industry seize the opportunity to show social responsibility and collectively support cancer research by financial means. Cancer is a terrible disease that gravely influence lives and has major consequences for both those affected and those close to them. It's nice for us to have the opportunity to contribute, and we encourage everyone to do the same." says Director of Marketing and Communications, Renate Hjørnevik.
