‣ Valtteri Bottas, the number 15 in the championship, has thanked his supporters for their contributions in November, during which he sold nude calendars for Movember.
‣ The proceeds from the calendar sales and donations have raised a substantial amount for Movember, which supports research against prostate cancer.
‣ The exact amount raised is still being calculated, but Bottas announced that it’s around $150k.
‣ Despite his philanthropic success, Bottas’ time at Alfa Romeo has not been as successful, with only a ninth place in the constructors’ championship.
Valtteri Bottas, the number 15 in the championship, has taken to social media to express his gratitude. He’s been feeling the love from his supporters over the past month. He’s been doing something a bit different, too. He’s been dedicating his time to Movember, and he’s been doing it in a unique way – by selling nude calendars.
“Thanks a ton for all the support in November,” he posted on X. He was referring to the donations and calendar sales, which have together raised a significant amount for Movember. But it’s not just about the money. Bottas, a Finn, went a step further. He sold nude calendars featuring, well, himself.
A portion of the proceeds from these calendars will be used for prostate cancer research. “We’ve really made a difference and will impact and save many lives,” he added. It’s a powerful statement, and it’s clear that Bottas is passionate about the cause.
The exact amount raised is still being calculated. But the Alfa Romeo driver did give a ballpark figure. “We’re talking around $150k of funds raised!” he announced. That’s a hefty sum, and it’s sure to make a difference in the fight against prostate cancer.
But while Bottas’s fundraising efforts have been successful, his time at Alfa Romeo hasn’t been as smooth. He’s only managed a ninth place in the constructors’ championship. It’s not ideal, but it’s part of the game.
Bottas wrapped up Movember with a heartfelt tweet. “Thank you so much for all the support in November. With the donations and with the calendars we have together raised a substantial amount for Movember – meaning WE have really helped and will effect and save many people’s lives,” he wrote. The final figures are still to come, but it’s clear that Bottas’s efforts have made a difference.
So there you have it. A story of a race car driver, a nude calendar, and a fight against prostate cancer. It’s not your everyday tale, but it’s one that’s made a difference. And for that, we say: well done, Bottas. Well done.
