El Cruce de los Andes 2018
100 km and 2 dreams for the Association "Les Petits Princes"
Mythical race between Chile and Argentina "El Cruce de los Andes" is a 100 km 3-stage trail through Andean Mountains (Cordillera de los Andes). Run in a dozen hours, this challenge was realized in support of the French association "Les Petits Princes" who realizes the dreams of seriously ill children. The project brought together more than 45 generous donors to finance 2 children's dreams.
The positive impact of the dream: "A child who lives out his passion and realizes his dreams, it is a child who finds extra energy to fight against the disease! " Operating only thanks to the donations and the time of its volunteers, "Les Petits Princes" team has been active since 1987 and has just completed the 7000th dream in December 2018!
Emmanuel Graille, general manager of AIT Argentina, comments "Alone we go faster, together we go further", a saying that had never made so much sense to me. I would like to thank all the support that made the project possible, especially the donors including AIT INGREDIENTS, my French colleagues who provided material logistics and my family for the time given to the realization of this dream ...
