Valentino Rossi and Francesco Bagnaia have started fundraising for hospitals in Italy
The Coronavirus has affected a lot of countries across the world as well as the 2020 MotoGP season with a couple of races rescheduled so far.
Valentino Rossi decided to help hospitals in Italy to overcome the Coronavirus outbreak by donating to the Marche Nord Hospital, in Pesaro, Italy.
“VR46, together with several entrepreneurs from the Marche region, brought its contribution to the fundraising dedicated to the ’Together for Marche Nord’ Association, 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,” said Rossi’s representatives.
Also, MotoGP rider Francesco Bagnaia and his fan club have joined the cause. The Italian started fundraising for the Molinette Hospital in Turin’s Resuscitation department.
“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,” said Bagnaia.
It’s interesting to see what other MotoGP riders will join and help the people affected the Coronavirus outbreak.
