Smiles have been on all faces yesterday afternoon, together with of course these of the kids. In entrance of the racetrack management screens, you can see the record of prizes in play for these “heart trotters” in the colours of Marseille associations working inside the Public Assistance-Hospitals of Marseille (AP-HM). Like Rire Médecins or Soleil bleu azur.
For a €3 entry ticket, regulars have been handled to an equestrian, festive and charitable occasion. The proceeds from this sale will go to the pediatric companies of La Timone hospital.It is a sequence of solidarity the place we want everybody's funding, the place each gesture is necessary and the place associations can meet, deciphers Virginie Negri, common delegate of the Phoceo fund, which works to enhance the reception of sufferers and their households inside the hospital. This is a chance for us to focus on associations that aren't talked about sufficient. We are fortunate that the Marseille racecourses welcome us by offering a spot and devoting quite a bit of vitality to it.“.
In the entrance to the Marseille-Vivaux racecourse, the representatives of these same associations were there to present their projects. Some children even had the right to board the vehicles that usually follow the races. “One of our goals is to raise 25,000€ to finance armchairs that turn into beds for families”, explains Serge Tardy, president of the equestrian society of Marseille racecourses.
The subsequent operation will happen in May on the website of the Borély racecourse. Proceeds will probably be donated to caregivers.
