Au-Delà Des Pistes selected to benefit from first “Charity Mile” to take place in France

Posted on | Posted in news

The first edition of the Charity Mile to be held on French soil will take place at Cagnes-sur-Mer racecourse on
Saturday 25th February 2017, under the guidance of Princess Charlene of Monaco.
Every runner in the “Prix de la Princesse de Monaco – Charity Mile” will be associated to a charity, which will
receive a donation depending on how “its” horse fared in the race. This type of charitable race was created by
Princess Charlene of Monaco’s father Mr. Mike Wittstock in his native South Africa.
Eighteen charities have been selected for this event and Au Delà Des Pistes is honoured to be amongst this
prestigious group.
Multiple French champion jockey `Christophe Soumillon, one of Au Delà Des Pistes’ ambassadors, has already
contributed to the event by donating the prize money he earnt on his mounts at Cagnes-sur-Mer on 4th February
to the Charity Mile sponsorship pool.
Au Delà Des Pistes will be represented for this event by Alix Choppin, the Marketing Director of Arqana and
member of Au-Delà Des Pistes’s Advisory Board.
