UTMB® a solidarity event
Since 2003, we have always been dedicated to combining the energy of the event with its spirit of solidarity. At the foot of Mont Blanc, we are infused with the famous team spirit and driven by the desire to help everyone achieve their own victories.
Since 1987, based on mutual aid, l’ARFEC – Association of families of children with cancer – aims to support and accompany families of children with cancer. We've all experienced the illness of one of our children, and we know what families need.
The aim of the association is to support and accompany the families of children with cancer during and after treatment. Childhood cancer is a long illness that affects the whole family, including parents and siblings.
Community Foundation of Valle d'Aosta
The Community Foundation of Valle d'Aosta funds socially beneficial projects aimed at improving the quality of life in the Valle d'Aosta region through calls for proposals, sponsorships, micro-grants, and exemplary projects.
Our project for the use of Runner Donations 2024 will involve the collaboration of the 6 Rotary Clubs around Mont Blanc: Aosta, Courmayeur, Martigny, Verbier, Mont Blanc Vallée d'Arve, and Chamonix Mont Blanc Megève.
We will collaborate with three associations working for the well-being of women who have been affected by cancer in Italy (VIOLA), Switzerland (A Petit Pas Vers Ton Sommet), and France (Des Elles pour Vous).
The project involves around twenty women from the three countries. We will organize a meeting for them in the form of a mountain weekend in the Beaufortain on October 5th and 6th, 2024, supervised by three Mountain Guides, one for each country.
