Tuesday, March 20 at 12.00 will open the sale of "solidarity bibs" and "ECO bibs".
Where the VDA Trailers races pass, there are only signs of solidarity and sporting spirit and no signs of damaging the territory.
There will be 20 for the Tor des Gèants® (€ 2000 each) and the same for the Tot Dret (€ 1000 each).
A part of the proceeds will also be divided into two parts this year. One will go to Free to Run, the project launched by the Canadian runner Stephanie Case - engaged in its activity for the UN - which will allow the participation in the Tor of five athletes from war zones. The other will go to the Tettamanti Foundation of Monza, which has long been at the forefront of research into childhood leukemia.
Sport and health will therefore have the decisive support of particularly generous and supportive athletes.
To these bibs another five are added for each of the two races, called "ECO bibs". The proceeds will be used to support a new environmental management project of the VDA Trailers events, with particular reference to the minimization of waste and the improvement of recycling in all the event areas, and the containment of emissions through a sustainable management of transport and energy. Project launched together with ERICA, a Piedmontese cooperative active internationally in terms of research, education and environmental communication, already a partner of the Tor and also active in other international sporting events such as the Giro d'Italia. To make the project active, an Environmental Commission will soon be established between VDA Trailers, Coop ERICA and Valle d'Aosta territorial institutions.
