Affiche Challenge contre la Faim 2024

On Thursday June 13, 2024, Action contre la Faim's inter-company sports, solidarity and humanitarian challenge returns to the parvis de La Défense for the 15th edition of this historic event. So get your sneakers on and come and run in solidarity !

Since its first edition at Paris La Défense in 2008, almost 40,000 employees and hundreds of companies have taken part in the adventure. In all, over 6 million euros have already been raised via this event. Even today, more than 828 million* women and men suffer from hunger, so it's vital that we continue to support them. 1 lap of the run or 6 minutes of sport (walking, yoga, zumba, fitboxing) equals €10 in donations !

For 1h30, employees in Europe's 1st business district are invited to take part in a range of sporting activities, or to visit the awareness-raising area to learn more about the humanitarian profession.

On the program ?

  • A collective warm-up
  • A choice of activities: running, walking, yoga, zumba ;
  • New for 2023: fitboxing, with a workout combining non-combat boxing moves and fitness exercises to build strength ;

A responsible event

The little extra ? Since 2019, the Challenge contre la Faim has been in compliance with the eco-responsible charter of the French Ministry of Sports and the WWF. The aim is to reduce the ecological impact of sporting and solidarity challenges, and thus limit the negative effects on our environment.
