RACE FOR HEROES 2013

At our first attempt it was a resounding success!

On Sunday 16 June, at the Saint-Cloud Park (Sèvres) AMTM took part, for the first time, in the Race for Heroes organised by the online fund-raising site ALVARUM.

A few figures :

  • 60 runners agreed to raise funds and to run on behalf of AMTM
  • 55 reached their target  (a minimum of 200€ )
  • 22 even won their badge for ‘Super Heroes’  (a minimum of 500€)
  • On the day 31,426€ were collected for AMTM!

  • 4,000 people took part in this race
  • belonging to 170 Associations
  • 1.5 million euros were collected for this one race in Paris.

For our first attempt at this race AMTM fulfilled all its aims:

  • To assemble a large team of runners, of whom almost all reached their target!
  • To generate an impressive ratio of Super Heroes (40% compared to the average of 24% for the other Associations).
  • And obviously to raise the necessary funds for our project and the preparation of future missions.

This performance was acknowledged by Alvarum who mentioned AMTM in their Newsletter, which was sent out during the race, under the title:

1ST YEAR, 1ST SUCCESS!

In the North-West of India, AMTM has built a
Medical Centre at an altitude of 3,700 metres, thanks to 50 Heroes.

Let us remember...

The aim of this event is very practical:

The completion of a medical building on Top of the World!

This construction will benefit thousands of people in this region from the Spiti area in India. There, where today it often requires 3 days of walking to get treatment, the Medical Centre will bring security and first-aid care.

Thanks to you, the funds are going to be transferred quickly, so that the building work can begin again.

You will be given regular updates on the progress of the construction work, especially via our Newsletter.

THANKS TO THE RUNNERS!

The extra funds collected will finance future missions for medical care and humanitarian aid in Nepal and India…
