Charities

For the first edition of Alambike, the organisers naturally chose to support two local charities whose common values, the causes they stand for and the ties of affection resonate strongly with the Wetzayers!

All donations collected during the event will be donated to two Les Gets’ charities: “Pierrot Colonge – Mountain Brothers” and “The Ellie Soutter Foundation”! With 24 hours of cycling and events in the village… on 5 & 6 September, every kilometre will count. Ready to take up the challenge?

Pierrot Colonge
Mountain Brothers

The “Pierrot Colonge – Mountain Brothers” charity was founded following the death in the mountains of Pierre Colonge, a freeskier from Les Gets, an ESF ski instructor and also a member of the Wetzayers. The aim of the charity is to provide support and guidance (mental, financial, psychological…) to families and/or loved ones of anyone who dies while participating in outdoor sports, in particular in the mountains.

The Ellie Soutter Foundation

Following the tragic death of 18-year-old Ellie Soutter, a Team GB snowboarder from Les Gets, her family has committed to continue fundraising in her memory. The Ellie Soutter Foundation supports promising young ski and snowboard athletes, both financially and mentally, to help them fulfil their potential and achieve their dreams.
