The “24 hour" Tour Challenge

09-06-2009-


As a prelude to the Tour Challenge and in order to make people more aware of their action, the APHM's (Hospital Staff Association of Monaco) cycling team are getting ready to pedal 24h non stop on a home trainer on 10th and 11th June.

The organisation of this initial sports challenge and the whole “Tour Challenge” project is driven by the motivation of the APHM members coupled with the support of Philippe Verdier from the Children & Future Association (and organiser of No Finish Line).

The “24 hours” is taking place from Wednesday 10th June 2009 at 4 p.m. until Thursday 11th June 2009 at 4 p.m., quai Antoine I (in front of Stars'n'Bars). The purpose of the event is to present the goals of Monaco Collectif Humanitaire but also to raise funds for the medical treatment of sick children thanks to the sale of the kilometres covered by our cyclists. The Tour Challenge team hopes to mobilise the attention and generosity of all.

Journalists are invited to attend the start of the event on 10th June at 3.45 p.m. when they will have the opportunity of meeting the organisers.

The Tour Challenge will kick off on 3rd July at the Rainier III watersports stadium, when the APHM cycling team will pedal the 3500 km of the official Tour de France circuit by relaying each other 24/7 for a whole week.
