Press release, October 2nd 2020

Sport Heroes understands how important to sensitize sporting communities to help protect the environment, and has joined forces with the WWF France in a 3 year partnership.

The aim is to create awareness and get Sports Heroes’ 1.5 million running, cycling and swimming members involved with sporting challenges and virtual events fuelled by the WWF France’s messages and campaigns.
