Fundraise for a cause close to your heart
For the second year in a row, the Villars Ultraks will be partnering with the GivenGain Foundation, a global online fundraising platform, to offer participants the chance to make a difference for their favourite charities.
Last year, generous racers like you raised more than 8,000 CHF for four awesome charities: Fondation Théodora, Zoé4Life, The Honnold Foundation and Fondation Au Coeur des Grottes. Together you helped to take care of hospitalised children, protect victims of gender-based violence and install solar panels in developing countries.
This year, you can once again make your Villars Ultraks 2022 even more meaningful by raising money for our returning charity partner, Fondation Théodora – or for your favourite charity wherever they are in the world. Not only will you be making a difference to others, but it’ll also help you find that extra motivation to train on snowy or rainy days.
Fundraise for Fondation Théodora
Since 1993, the Theodora Foundation has been pursuing its goal of relieving the daily lives of children in hospitals and specialised institutions through laughter. Every week, they organise and finance the visits of 75 professional artists, known as Doctors of Dreams, to 34 hospitals and 27 institutions for children with disabilities. In 2021, these amusing and endearing characters have made more than 100,000 visits to children in Switzerland to offer them smiles and moments of joy.
Fundraise for any other cause
You can also fundraise for your favourite charity – wherever they are in the world. If your special charity is not on GivenGain yet, send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org and GivenGain will get them set up for free so that you can fundraise for them as part of your race.
