Since 2016 we can count on the support of the Massillon School to save children through various events (cross country, sports challenges...). As its name indicates, during the Talents of the Heart, it is the talent of the students that is honored. And they are not lacking in talent! Singing, music, dance, gymnastics, plastic arts... we are amazed every year by their artistic performances!
In the audience, little Fatoumata was present, accompanied by Martine and Daniel, her foster family. Originally from the Ivory Coast, she was able to undergo heart surgery thanks to the donations collected by the establishment. Discovering the concrete result of their actions was a wonderful surprise for all those present. Fatoumata, who is 2 and a half years old, was very well behaved throughout the show and even had fun with the students.
The ticketing, the donations, the sales of the store and the catering area of this4th edition allowed to collect more than 6 000 € for the association which come to add to the global collection of the school. All of them can be very proud of their talents and especially of having contributed to save 14 heart children for 7 years!
A big thank you to the city hall of Paris Centre which made available for free the magnificent Halle des Blancs Manteaux. Thanks also to all the partners (3G Services, Group HD Menuiserie ADM, Match Event, Guéret sécurité, Scolarest, ADDSP, Aprile, VS mobilier, Bruneau, Denis Power, RMA ascenseurs, Maitrise-Toit and the APEL Massillon parents' association) as well as to all the volunteers who attended. The generosity of everyone made it possible to reduce the production costs of the event and to dedicate a maximum of funds to the care of children with heart disease.
