Trek des Gazelles: a hike for a humanitarian cause

Written by FDM

Next October in Morocco, 250 women from around the world, will go on a trek for a noble cause: support children with cancer.

Organized by the French association ”Trek des Gazelles”, this female-only sports and solidarity event -in its fourth edition- will take place in two stages: Ifrane , from October 15 to 19 and Essaouira from October 29 to November 2nd.

Meantime, the profits will help fund various actions such as accessibility to recreation for sick children, research and training of medical staff, said Thursday, the organizers at a press conference dedicated to the presentation of this event, held at the headquarters of the representation in Paris of Office national marocain du Tourisme (ONMT).

The “Trek des gazelles” event was born from the desire to bring together women from different backgrounds around an essential cause: a sports and human adventure; a itinerant hike expressing values of solidarity and hope; a sports event without any spirit of competition, says Melanie Salgues, founder of the Trek des Gazelles, for whom the ultimate goal of this highly humanitarian initiative is to support children with cancer.
