There was a caveat to this though. As the only prize we give to our athletes is a t-shirt, the money would have to be donated to a charity chosen by the winners.
This years winners Line Foss and Allan Hovda has now had time to figure out what to do with the money. Line will donate her share to the The Norwegian Cancer Society. Having benefited from the very valuable research they do, this was a very obvious choice for her. Allan, like so many of us, touched by the story about Malala Yousafzai, will donate his share to The Malala Fund and their work to secure girls all around the world a proper formal education.
All of us in the Norseman crew are ”xtremely” proud to have sponsors showing initiative like this. They are a vital part at keeping our little event TRUE, BASIC and UNIQUE.
