Special Olympics race

Parvis

  • On October 1, 2020

Come change society's view of mental disability by running with Special Olympics! See you on October 1st, from noon to 2pm, on the square in front of La Défense.

It's the oldest solidarity race in the neighborhood! On October 1st, 2020, Special Olympics is organising its inter-company relay race on the square in front of La Défense. This association works for the sports integration of mentally handicapped people.

In France, 900,000 people live with a mental disability. Where society saw only limits, sport opens up possibilities. Around 1,200 volunteers from companies in Paris La Défense are therefore expected to walk or run a 4 x 2.5 km relay and thus offer people living with an intellectual disability the opportunity to fulfil themselves through sport. Come in large numbers!
