A tenth edition for the “Children without cancer” race

One step at a time for children without cancer. The Imagine for Margo association will organize, on Sunday, September 26, its traditional big race to raise funds.

The objective is to finance research projects, while providing maximum support to the families of sick children. Since 2012, during the first nine editions, just over 30,000 runners have already participated in the event, raising 10 million euros.

Already 3,000 registered for the 2021 edition

This new race promises to be successful, with 3,000 registered, who will be able to participate in several ways.

After a somewhat special 2020 edition, because it is 100% virtual, this time the race will be both connected and face-to-face at the national domain of Saint-Cloud. Three routes will be offered: 5 km walking, 5 km running and 10 km running. THE’registration, for 10 euros, is simple. The challenge can then begin because the participants are responsible, before the event, to collect a minimum of 200 euros (100 euros for minors / students) to validate their registration, by appealing to donors.

Several events each year

The Imagine for Margo association multiplies initiatives each year to draw attention to the scourge of pediatric cancer. This is particularly the case in September, which is also the official month for the fight against childhood cancer. The most recent event took place a few days ago, when the Patrouille de France participated in its own way in the combat of the little warriors. After a flight over Place de la Concorde, the Alpha Jets were to head to the Gustave Roussy Institute in Villejuif (Val-de-Marne), to greet the children treated on site and the caregivers.

An auction was organized in the wake of the Automobile club de France. Several prizes had been donated by the Patrol, including jackets and helmets.

Each year in France, cancer is diagnosed in 2,500 children and adolescents. 500 die from it. It is the leading cause of death from disease in children. Research is all the more crucial given that the forms of cancer (60 in total) that affect children are different from those that affect adults and require specific treatments.
