Mountain sports festival on Sunday 23 July

Five activities will be on offer from 10.00 to 17.30 at the Belles Leisure Park, with all proceeds going to the Petits Princes Association: cani-rando (hiking with dogs), rock-climbing, archery, biathlon and mountain biking.

 

The Petits Princes Association is an association which, since 1987, has been making the dreams come true of children and adolescents who are seriously ill with cancer, leukemia, and certain genetic illnesses.

 

But they don’t just stop at making one dream come true. In partnership with 150 hospitals throughout France, several dreams of the same child can be arranged according to his favourite activities, his rhythms, treatments and hospitalizations. Since these illnesses often affect the whole family, the parents and siblings can live the dreams with the child in most cases.

 

Since 1987, 6,000 dreams have been made to come true. Every day, one child’s dream is accomplished.

 

So come and take part in this special day to help others and have fun yourself: each activity costs 3€ and a 10€ pass gives you access to all 5 activities.

10.00 – 12.00 and 14.00 – 16.00: Cani-rando (hiking with dogs) with 3D Nordic
