Armada Creates #WeArmada, Combating Cancer One Mountain Climb At A Time

Despite all the feuds that are coming out this week, there are plenty of industry members doing their part in bettering the world instead.

Earlier this week, Porter Robinson announced his new cancer foundation to help support the UNC Medicine team. He hopes to raise money for professionals to research and battle a rare form of cancer with which his brother was diagnosed. Armada has also jumped on the heartwarming efforts.

The iconic music label’s co-founder and CEO, Maykel Piron, created Team #WeArmada when his son Mick was stricken with leukemia early in life.

#WeArmada has teamed up with the Alpe d’HuZes. Alpe d’HuZe, whose name is a combination of the name of the mountain Alpe d’Huez and the Dutch word “zes” (six), is a fundraising event in which participants bike or climb the well-known mountain six times. This is the third year the event has been happening. This event is not for the faint of heart, either. The mountain is also used as one of the courses in the Tour de France.

Thankfully, Mick is on his way to recovery and in good spirits. But #WeArmada will not stop there in their efforts to help others battling cancer, now and for the future.

LAST CHANCE TO SUPPORT US ⠀⁣⠀⠀We (team #WeArmada) first joined Alpe d'HuZes back in 2017 when Mick, Maykel Piron's son, was diagnosed with leukemia. It was a wake-up call for all of us, and showed us that we’ve got to keep fighting in order to put a stop to this terrible disease. Now that Mick has made a full recovery, we want to keep pushing on and help as many people as we can.⠀⁣⠀⠀Team #WeArmada will participate in Alpe d’HuZes for the third time in a row.
