Who are we and what do we do?
Created in 1996, our biking club , the Vélo Club Fraiture (VCF) started to support diverse local charities and raised more than 40K € in 4 challenges (2014, 2016, 2018 and 2020).
In 2020 we started to brand our charity activities under the name Move For Children (#M4C).
This year, like in our 2020 trip, we’ll help in 2021 a foster home (La Loupiotte), a boy with muscular dystrophy (Duchenne) and we added a charity taking care of children with cancer (AEC, #AEC).
Specifically for AEC in 2021 we decided to make a specific 1,000 Km biking challenge.
As you may imagine in these COVID-19 pandemic years, we have to be flexible and envisage 2 plans to take into consideration potential borders being closed.
You can find in our blog posts Plan A and Plan B that will make us raise money for AEC with the support of our major sponsor TFS CRO #TFSCRO.
Fortunately our major sponsor #TFSCRO is also helping the team to get a new outfit to be comfortable achieving our challenge:
The #AEC project we support:
A child with cancer who is to receive a bone marrow transplant must stay at least 6 to 8 weeks in a sterile room at the CHU de Liège.
Which means mom or dad is in the hospital.
The family is completely upset, disorganized, but above all the siblings are somewhat neglected.
There are only three marrow transplant centers in Belgium, including the CHU de Liège. Where children sometimes come from very far away (Couvin, Bouillon, Waimes ……)
Our plan is to be able to welcome the family at least on weekends so that mom and dad can find the brothers and sisters. But also that the parent who stays with the child can have a welcoming and warm place to rest, relax while remaining close to their little one.
We have just bought a house in which we are going to build two small apartments, but it will take a lot of energy but above all a lot of expense.
Transformation of the building into two apartments, interior fittings, furniture …
We hope this project will get your full attention, thank you in advance.
