All the more so nowadays, we must be aware of our health capital and the need to take care of it.
Every year, the ELA association (European Leukodystrophy Association) organises the "Mets tes baskets et bats la maladie" (Put on your trainers and beat the disease) solidarity event in companies. The employees of a company thus become actors of a solidarity initiative and commit themselves to a good cause by symbolically lending their legs to people suffering from this degenerative disease.
The challenge is to individually take as many steps as possible within a given time to reach a common goal. For our first participation, we saw things in a big way and set our team the following challenge: to reach 1 million steps in 8 hours.
Equipped with our pedometer and trainers, we took 1,136,340 steps! What a proud moment. Genista will donate €1,128.20 to the association.
To thank all the employees in a humorous way, watch the making of the event "Put on your trainers and beat the disease".
