To help fight the coronavirus pandemic, Valentino Rossi and Pecco Bagnaia have contributed to hospitals in Italy.
Despite the Italian government’s preventive measures, the coronavirus pandemic isn’t going away anytime soon – and that’s why Valentino Rossi and Pecco Bagnaia have made donations to help hospitals fight against the virus.
Rossi has made a ‘generous contribution’ to the Marche Nord hospital trust, while Bagnaia and his fan club have started fundraising for the Molinette Hospital in Turin’s Resuscitation department.
Speaking about the donation, Rossi representatives said: “VR46, together with several entrepreneurs from the Marche region, brought its contribution to the fundraising dedicated to the’Together for Marche Nord’ Association, in order to purchase new respirators for the Marche Nord Hospital. Strongly believing in actions aimed at countering the Coronavirus emergency, VR46 invites anyone to act in compliance with the rules and to contribute to fundraisers to help those who are committing themselves to overcome this complicated moment in these days.”
Speaking about his fundraising campaign, Bagnaia said: “I together with the Pecco Fan Club have decided to open a fundraising campaign to be donated to charity to help Torino Città della Salute, the funds will go to the intensive care unit of the Molinette Hospital in Turin in the fight against coronavirus. The proceeds will be paid by bank transfer directly to the hospital account. We will take care to demonstrate the devolution of the sum by publishing the details of the bank receipt.
Just a small gesture is enough, if you don’t have the opportunity to donate I ask you to share our message, it’s really important. Do it for yourself, do it for your families, your grandparents, the weakest people and unfortunately for those who are fighting the virus.”
It’s brilliant to see these two big name racers getting behind their local hospitals and supporting their communities. Credit to them. If you’re interested in helping the cause, here’s where to donate to Rossi’s local hospital.
