Vittoria donates three Pinarello bikes to raise funds for Ukrainian children with cancer.
The Italian bicycle tire manufacturer is kicking off a fundraising campaign by donating three road racing bikes from its Servizio Corse, the team of mechanics in Vittoria that provides neutral technical assistance to cyclists in major cycling competitions across the world.
All funds collected will be donated to Soleterre Onlus to ensure rapid assistance to children with cancer in Ukraine.
All three Pinarello Dogma K 65.1 carbon-framed bikes feature Shimano Ultegra 11-speed groupset, Qurano 46 carbon wheels and Vittoria Corsa cotton tubulars. The top-of-the-line bikes are available in sizes 51, 54 and 55 respectively.
“Vittoria Servizio Corse’s mission is to serve others, especially in times of need,” a statement read. “Through this fundraising, Vittoria and its Servizio Corse intend to engage their altruism for a greater cause.
“The suffering that the war in Ukraine is causing to the population is visible to all and Vittoria wants to do her part. Proceeds from the fundraiser will be donated to the Italian non-profit organization Soleterre. With your donation, you will help Ukrainian children with cancer by supporting their care.
