Run for Women this May 2019
Women Helping Women
What could be better motivation for a run than knowing you’re doing it for a good cause? Courir Pour Elles benefits associations that work in preventing female cancers and improving the quality of life of women suffering from cancer.
Since 2010, more than 80,000 women have participated in the event. The association has donated 900,000€ to support ill women and 440,000€ to associations that fight against cancer.
Walk, Run, or Do Yoga
Courir Pour Elles is suitable for all abilities. There’s a 5km race for fans of running or a 10km race for more experienced runners. If running isn’t your thing, you could join in with the yoga class or 5km walk. Under 16s can participate in yoga or the 10km race.
A Convivial Moment
Running at Courir Pour Elles isn’t just about the exercise, it’s about sharing a moment with other women and running for life. It’s a festive and familial day to which all generations are invited.
Yoguer Pour Elles is equally as convivial, with women who perhaps aren’t as able to run coming together to also celebrate life and fight against women’s cancer.
Also in the grounds of Parilly park is the health village, where everyone can come together and meet Courir Pour Elles’ partners.
It is the meeting point for all participants and supporters, to remind them just what they’re there for.
You can also buy memorabilia at the Courir Pour Elles boutique, profits from which go towards caring for ill women.
