€1700 raised for Point rose
€1700 was raised for the Point rose association, supported by OGC Nice since the 2015/16 season, during the recent Nice IRONMAN.
On Sunday 26 June, 34 members of the 'les sardines triathlon' club participated in the Nice IRONMAN to raise money for the Point rose association. The Club, via its Endowment Fund, joined the initiative by donating €50 per finisher. All 34 athletes crossed the line. That made a total of €1700 for the Point rose, an association that endeavours to make the final days of terminally ill children and their family as comfortable as possible while also supporting the bereaved following their child's death.
