Serge Betsen Academy signed a partenrship with Val Thorens.
During the 6 Stations tournament which took place for the first time last year, Serge Betsen met with the ski resort of Val Thorens. It is the highest ski resort in Europe (2 300 m high) and the peak of the largest skiing area, les 3 Vallées (600 Km of connected ski runs).
Serge Betsen Academy and Val Thorens are now partners, on the basis of their common values of sharing, sport, health and education. Various actions will be set up this winter, such as a solidarity-based shop through the new Val Thorens e-boutique (clothes collection and Freegun/Val Thorens accessories). For each sale, 1€ is donated to the charity. The Val Thorens United/ Freegun collection is available on www.valthorens.com and on some of the station’spartners (a list is available at the Tourism Office).
This support will enable the charity to finance an important part of its projects in Cameroon for 2014, which marks the 10th anniversary of Serge Betsen Academy.
The chairman’s message
“I’m delighted to have signed this partnership with Val Thorens. On the one hand, it highlights the work that has been done in Cameroon for 9 years, and on the other hand it promotes a great ski resort. which will provide essential funds to develop the charity’s activities. That is why I want to deeply thank Val Thorens for its generosity, as well as well as our volunteers in Cameroon, France, the UK and the USA for their daily work with the sole aim to help children to build a better future in a difficult environment”.
