Make a Wish

The famous "encounters already written in the destiny" are back. The encounter with Marco while riding to Nevache is bringing good outcomes. Following I would like to post the information received from Marco about a very nice initiative that held place on Sunday June the 30th for the Wish A Mile 2013. Congratulation for the initiative.

By Marco Mazzola 

On Sunday June the 30th a riding meeting was organized from Bosconero to Stresa in the occasion of Wish A Mile 2013, an event organized since years in the US and now even in Italy has been adopted. This event is connected to a funding collection in favor of Make a Wish Italia.

We departed from the Eaton factory site at 5:45am
ad we arrived in Stresa at 13:30.

We stopped twice: the first in the site of  Pella Company (our sponsor of riding clothes) in Valdengo and the second just before the Orta Lake.

We had lunch in the  Ristorante L'Idrovolante in Stresa. We would like to strongly reccomend to everybody for both reasons for the hospitality and the really good food... by the way the owner is a cyclist as well.

The last year we collected  2600 € and we bought a special bike for a child with mobility problems (here you can find the report of all the 2012 activities)

This year we adopted the wish of Cezara a young girl affected by SLA who wish to visiting Dubai; the cost is around 4500 € and we the help of the Eaton employees, the Eaton cyclists, the De Santo Company and the Pella Company we are able to cover the costs for the stay of all the family in Dubai.
