During the events some merchandising like bracelets, t-shirts and foulard, were sold with the only purpose to donate the funds collected from the sale of the products to support the project WOMEN’S CANCER CENTER run by the Foundation IEO – CCM. A great special thanks to the Italian referee Giulio Zucchetti who created and gifted WAKO nice pins to our campaign! Two Doctors of IEO (European Oncological Institute) were present during the events, and explained the activities of Women’s Cancer Center.
