The Prize

Take home this white shirt, a Replica version from the film "Escape to Victory", personalized with former forward Edson Arantes do Nascimento's name and number, better known as Pelé.

"Escape to Victory" is a 1981 film directed by John Huston.

The film, loosely based on the exhibition match held in Kiev on August 9, 1942 between a team of Dynamo and Lokomotiv footballers and a team of German Luftwaffe aviation officers, remains popular today, particularly due to the big footballing names who starred alongside the main actors - including the famous Pelé.

Pelè has signed the shirt on the back, making it a truly unique item.

The Cause

Since 2003, the Veronesi foundation has been pursuing a single objective: promoting the progress of science, health resources and ethical growth—civilly and in society.

"Science must always work for and with the human being,” declared the founder, Umberto Veronesi, “this means respect of the person, research for solutions and strategies that can improve the quality of life, offering new hopes for the present and for the generations in the future”.

At the core of the foundation there is barrier-free and scientific research that invests in young talent from each country, working toward answers to new questions using innovative and high-profile research programs dedicated to the prevention and diagnosis of tumors, cardiovascular disease and neuroscience, and the discovery of cure strategies that are efficient and beneficial to the entire community.

Unique in its genesis, the foundation has pushed its own interests outside the walls of a laboratory, encouraging social involvement and education in science. The Veronesi Foundation is also active with its devotion to science so that the results from science become available to everybody. Particularly, the foundation spreads the principles of prevention and correct lifestyle to keep disease away, even the most serious diseases that we can avoid just by changing our behavior.
