D1 Arkema: 10,000 euros donated for "Octobre Rose"
Since the beginning of October, the French Football Federation, Division 1 and its sponsor Arkema have decided to work with the Ruban Rose group in their fight against breast cancer by donating 100 euros per goal scored in the competition. And this campaign, called "Octobre Rose", which ended this weekend, was a great success.
In addition to various actions such as wearing armbands, pink laces, and awareness messages, the players managed to raise 10,000 euros for the cause thanks to 72 goals scored and Arkema's great generosity to round up the sum. A few minutes before the big match between Montpellier and OL kicked off, it was the teams' two captains, Iva Landeka and Wendie Renard who symbolically presented the check that was to be handed over to Ruban Rose, allowing for an additional opportunity to shed more light on this fight.
