Erik Zabel and Team Milram are offering a box of goodies to be auctioned on the German version of E-Bay for the benefit of the CARE charitable foundation. He is one of ten German celebrities participating in the action, which celebrates CARE's 60th anniversary. "I am very happy to have been asked to support this action to celebrate the 60th birthday of CARE with my personal CARE package, because this organisation continues to do some much for the poorest people in our world, continually and in an impressive manner," he said. "Therefore, I hope that the cycling fans will show as much enthusiasm for this project as the do on the race course, when they root for me and Team Milram."
The auction runs through October 26, and contains an invitation to meet with Zabel at a race, a signed Milram jersey, a personally dedicated autograph card and various team souvenir items.
