In april 2021, 126 staff took up a sport and solidarity challenge aiming at fundraising the cost of a child heart surgery.

During one month, people walked, ran, rode bicycles, practiced yoga, cardio-training, meditation or even gardening, among multiple activities recorded in their smartphone through United Heroes, the partner app of Mécénat Chirurgie Cardiaque.

The goal was to accumulate points, later transformed in money, to participate in Mécénat Chirurgie Cardiaque’s process to save a child with heart disease : his trip to France, his welcoming in a volunteer family, his surgery in one of the nine French hospitals, his recovering and his trip back home, with a brand new heart.

Thanks to the joyful efforts of 126 staff who accumulated more than 150 000 points, LOV Group and Airelles collected 12 000 euros to pay for the child surgery.

From Saint-Tropez to Paris, and on to Courchevel, Val d’Isère, Annecy and Lyon, in hotels as in offices, the staff ‘s involvement and determination remained constant and intact.

More than 18 000 kms have been travelled in 1 month !

Thanks to this beautiful performance, Mariam, a 2 years-old malian little girl, has undergone heart surgery in May in Strasbourg. She was suffering from the tetralogy of Fallot, usually called “The blue disease”, as it causes cyanosis. After recovering with her hosting family, she got back to Mali and joined her parents and her elder sister. She is now perfectly well!

LOV Group keep on being engaged with Mécénat Chirurgie Cardiaque after this first successful partnership.
