Audencia puts its sneakers on to fight breast cancer
On Sunday, March 8, International Women's Rights Day, 34 Audencia staff members and some of our students mobilized themselves to help the breast cancer research.
For the 4th consecutive year, Audencia gave its teams the opportunity to commit to a cause by participating in Odyssea, ac harity event of 5 or 10 km. The objective of the event: to raise funds for the fight against breast cancer, a disease that currently affects 1 woman out of 9 in France.
7000 participants were present and ready to raise funds to help the fight against breast cancer.
ODYSSEA events have a particular positioning: they are truly charitable events, since the association donates almost all of its gains to research institutes against breast cancer.
They therefore provide runners with a solidarity dimension, as shown by the sums collected: more than 100 000 euros last year for associations or research programs.
Beyond the charitable aspect, the association wants to raise awareness among participants of the benefits of sport on health. Numerous studies are now proving the positive effects of walking and running in the fight against various pathologies.
Many thanks and congratulations to our staff for their solidarity and courage!
