stage of the Tour Alison

"L'Étape du Tour de France with a solidarity bib was a great human and sporting adventure. I loved raising funds and explaining the purpose of the project to the various people I met. Doing the adventure under the colors of Mécénat Chirurgie Cardiaque was a real source of motivation during the event, which was really not easy! The volunteers and team were also a great help on the Croix de Fer pass! I'll remember it for a long time, full of intense emotions, between physical suffering and the joy of taking part for the children with heart attacks!"

Testimony Philippe_Etape du Tour

"Exerting yourself physically so that children can have a completely normal adult life through sport is exceptional. That's what motivated me the most personally."

"I didn't want to ride my bike stupidly with my head in the handlebars, I was pedaling for something. Unconsciously, you owe it to yourself to succeed and go all the way."
