“Amici della pediatria” (litterally: “Friends of Pediatrics”) is a non-profit Association founded in 1990, operating in the Pediatrics Department, Center of Pediatric Hematology and Oncology and Hepatology, Gastroenterology and Pediatric Transplants Unit at the Pope John XXIII Hospital in Bergamo, supporting children with serious or chronic diseases, hemato-oncological illnesses and who underwent organ transplants.
Since 2011, the OC aims to help the voluntary associations of Bergamo’s nearbies through the Charity Entry. So far the proceeds from the entries were allocated to Agenha Association (for the “Brick over brick” project for the benefit of people with disabilities), My Name is Help NPO Association (for the “Adopt a nursey school” project) and SIMBA NPO – Behçet syndrome and disease Italian Association.
Solidarity pedals onward
The OC commitment for solidarity began in 1999 with “Solidarity pedals onward” in favor of the Amici del Cuore NPO Association, with the yearly Pasta Party and Nutella Party both at the International Gran Fondo Felice Gimondi Bianchi in Bergamo and the GimondiBike international MTB competition in Franciacorta. Throughout 18 years many projects of Associazione Amici del Cuore O.N.L.U.S have been carried forward, raising a total of 100,000 Euros.
