On Saturday, 18th December, Arctur Team joined over 200 participants who were running & cycling to support VDC Nova Gorica, a public social welfare institution, to purchase a new therapeutic device – a special bicycle that will support and fasten up the recovery from the head or the spine injury. The event was supported also by Anej Doplihar, para–cycler, who showed with more than 40 circles that with a strong will anything is possible.

The good vibes invited also people who passed by the event and contribute donations. 

And results?
