Charity Places

The MdS UK’s Chosen Charity

We are proud to be associated with the charity started by MdS founder Patrick and Marie Bauer, Solidarite – MARATHON DES SABLES.By educating underprivileged children in the South of Morocco, using sport and play to help them understand their potential and choices, the Solidarite foundation continues to help change the lives of hundred of families.

The mothers of these children are also taught how to read and write and how to adopt best practice with regards to hygiene and healthcare.

One of the reasons we love this charity is that it is heavily supported by an army of well qualified volunteers (and some world class athletes) and every penny raised goes directly to the charity. No part of each donation goes towards fundraising, admin or marketing. When you are in Morocco for the Marathon des Sables, visit the ‘Maison des Solidarite’ and see for yourself the fantastic work that your money helps to achieve.
