Last weekend we experienced together the second edition of the “La Cursa de las Monas”, a day of sport, joy and solidarity. Everyone there ran for the primates of MONA Foundation.
But this event would not have been possible without all the volunteers who decided to work with us. Thank you guys, thanks for wanting to be part of our family!
Thank you to all the support companies: Frit Ravich, Bellsolá, EPIDOR Radicalmente Moritz, Restaurant les Oliveres, Forn de Llenya Cresell, COFFEE Cafeteria, Patronat de Turisme de Girona, Catalunya Caixa, Audax Energía, Ajuntament de Riudellots de la Selva, Consell Comarcal del Gironès i Diputació de Girona.
And to the participants : it would not have been possible without you all. No matter if you were walking or running, all of you put on enthusiasm and effort, and did it for them and only for them: our rescued chimpanzees and macaques. Thanks for that! And thanks for the constant support in every step we take.
In our Facebook (https://www.facebook.com/FundacioMONA/photos/?tab=album&album_id=1173846709321779) you will find a small compilation of the great day lived. Thanks again for participating and being part of this great event for primates.
See you in future editions of “La Cursa de las Monas”!
Did you know that W.A.Mozart was known to be an animal lover, as were his sister Anna and the rest of his family?
If he would still be alive today he would surely be thrilled by the idea of using his music in order to help improve the lives of animals, such as the primates housed at Fundación MONA.
And that´s what is going to happen, his music will be one of the main acts in our first charity concert organized by Fundación MONA!
Three international renowed artists are coming together to offer a musical festival: Patricia de No (flutist), Júlia Farrés (soprano) and Cristina Casale ( piano).
We hope to see you all there, having in mind that this MONA project is only possible thanks to all of you!
