The « Trophée Roses des Andes » is the first 100% feminin rally of South America. In team of two we had to follow a road book, and orient ourself only with a compass!
The « Trophée » defends sportiv values, as well as solidarity. Indeed, it helps a local association called « Equinoterapia del Azul » that make a fantastic work to help disable children with horses.
It was an tremendous week where we travelled more than 4 000km, and climb up to 4000m of altitud, right in the middle of the Andes Cordillere, Argentina.
But we had to diserve it…
It started by the phone call to one of my best friend Diane!
It continued with months of work to gather 20 000€ necessary to realise this challenge.
We first created a logo, a website, a strategy to defend the project.
Then, we had to find sponsors… To convince them to support us, make them believe in our dream ! And half in portuguese !!!
Then, we organized events, like dinners, lotteries…. I also produced watercolor drawing that I sell…
Everything between Rio and Angers !
And guess what ?
We made it !
We even finished 16n over 54 teams !
