Karl - A pioneer as Honorary President


It is with pleasure that we present Karl, the honorary president of the 11th edition of the 48-HOUR RIDE.

Karl, 8, is a smart boy with a good sense of humor. In August 2015, his life and his family’s was shaken when the result of a magnetic resonance imaging revealed the presence of a brain tumor. Since then, Karl has taken part in an experimental treatment that could represent a breakthrough for children like him.

After being referred by the hospital social worker, the family contacted us so that we could fulfill Karl's wish. Being a huge fan of superheroes, he wished to go to Walt Disney World to meet all his favorite characters. His wish came true last February. Upon his return, Karl's mother wrote: "We had a perfect week! Karl had a blast! Thank you for allowing us to live such beautiful moments as a family."

Thanks to your participation in the 48-HOUR RIDE, we can change lives, like Karl's. Thank you for being here for all these children and their families!
