Jan Ullrich is continuing his charity work for children and will ride the "Tour der Herzen" near Cologne, Germany, on August 17. The event raises funds for children with heart problems.
Ullrich is the father of two children, "and can understand that the parents of children with congenital heart defects need support," the race's press release said. "For Ullrich, who supports children's charities around the world, it was a clear thing to spontaneously accept."
The raised money will be donated to the cardiac station at the University Clinic Köln. A (minimum) start fee of 30 Euro will provide a financial base. Other donations will also be gratefully accepted.
