Following on from last year’s post titled “Maria de Villota: An Inspiration“, the launch date for this fundraising drive for the Ana Carolina Diez Mahou Foundation (Fundacion Ana Carolina Diez Mahou) – a nonprofit organization whose sole purpose is to improve the quality of life of children with genetic neuromuscular diseases (mainly mitochondrial and dystrophic) and their families – will be on 13th January 2014. This would have been Maria’s 34th birthday.
Maria was an inspiration to many, especially those involved in Formula One and in recognition of her contribution to motorsport and her charitable causes, fundraising events are being organised to support her chosen charity. For example, I am running a half-marathon and holding a charity auction and aiming to raise £1000 by mid 2014. Click here for the link to the GoFundMe Donation page.
All donations will be paid directly to the Ana Carolina Diez Mahou Foundation (Fundacion Ana Carolina Diez Mahou) to improve the lives of children with genetic neuromuscular diseases and their families too.
