Participation in a French inter-company marathon
In June 2018, Champtocé-sur-Loire employees took part in the inter-company marathon race. This event represents a real moment of conviviality between colleagues and has been unanimously accepted by the participants over the past few years.
A part of the registration fees was donated to the association "Le Rire Médecin". While in France, 1 in 2 children is hospitalized before the age of 15, the mission of the hospital clowns of Le Rire Médecin is to help these children and their parents to overcome their anxiety and loneliness.
At a time when children are building their future adult personality, illness and hospitalization, even for a short period of time, are a crucial experience. Depending on whether the child's stay in hospital has been positive or negative, mild or traumatic, this experience will significantly influence the rest of the child's life and his attitude towards the problems, both physical and psychological, that he will encounter later.
