The event aims to raise funds for GRiT ambassador, Sandi Menchi in her quest to represent the Philippines in one of the toughest ultra marathon mountain races in Europe, the TDS. Sur les Traces des Ducs de Savoie or TDS is a 119km with about 7,200 metres height gain in France. Sandi is the first Filipina who has a big chance of grabbing a top spot in this prestigious world mountain race.
Sandi has the will and capacity to fly our flag on the world stage. In preparation for her big race on August 28, 2017, Sandi will need every support and help that can elevate the Filipino dream to the highest peaks.
