The action in details:
During several editions of the "Course des Héros", organised every year in Paris and Lyon, Solibad participated by sending a team of runners. The principle of this solidarity race is, for each participant, to collect €250 in pledges from family and friends, in order to "validate" his or her race number. Donations are tax-free, as are donations for Solibad, and if this seems a complicated sum to reach, all participants were surprised by how easy it was to reach their goal :)
Once the race number has been validated, we all get together for the day of the race, which, depending on the registration, can take place over 2, 6 or 10 kms, and can be done by running or walking - so it can be done as a family without any problems. During these races, we have raised more than 5000 € for our programs !
On top of that, we disguise ourselves (if we want), we do sports and we have a great time while supporting a great cause.
The 2020 edition had been cancelled, but we plan to launch a few teams for the 2021 edition on the following dates :
Bordeaux: June 13th
Paris: 20 June
Live connected (Paris or elsewhere): 27 June
Lyon: 27th June
Nantes: 4 July
We will soon be setting up a pre-registration form for one of our races, but make a note of these dates in your diaries!
