The Tour de France Women with ZWIFT

Mécénat Chirurgie Cardiaque will be present in the caravan of the Tour de France Femme with Zwift!

We propose to the stage towns to carry the colours of their town and of generosity by offering visibility on our caravan at the start/finish and on the first/last 50 km of the stage and to put forward the young people around the values of solidarity during an official cheque handover with the Municipal Youth Council, an elected representative and the Association.

If each city donates 2,000 euros, two children with heart problems can be operated on!

The Solidarity Caravan

Since 2013, Mécénat Chirurgie Cardiaque has joined the advertising caravan!

What is the objective? To thank our partners because every donation counts and to highlight the cause of children with heart disease on the road of the Tour! This is made possible thanks to a great chain of solidarity:

  • A team of 7 entertainers and 100% volunteer drivers, 4 vehicles loaned by ŠKODA, 1 new festive vehicle, 1 truck dedicated to logistics loaned by Star Service, 200,000 goodies provided by our partners: Haribo, E.Leclerc, Škoda, Domitys and Parc Astérix, accommodation & catering offered and outfits offered by the partner Sol's, Le Coq Sportif and Arrêt de Jeu Consulting.

This year, the caravan has grown!

It hosted the "tronquinette", a festive vehicle representing a giant collection trunk, which helps amplify our message to the public. The motto: Every donation counts. This vehicle was made possible thanks to the expertise of Ideactif and Theobora agencies.


L'Étape du Cœur

Whether they are sportsmen and women, artists, journalists or presenters, our ambassadors are present to fly the Association's colours high on the Tour de France!

Their objective? Toride the loop of the stage just before the start of the Tour de France to highlight the work of the Association and give it maximum visibility.

📅 See you on July 7, 2023 on the last 42 km of the mont de Marsan > Bordeaux route!

Reliving the 2022 Heart Stage:

The Summits of the Heart

Since 2019, E.LECLERC has been committed to the Association during the Tour de France through the animation Les Sommets du Cœur which offers a fun and friendly moment to the public while raising awareness of the action of Mécénat Chirurgie Cardiaque. This year, the event has been revamped and offers a real funfair attraction for the whole family.

The spirit of collective effort still prevails as participants pedal together to raise a gauge and can boost their progress by trying to catch a pompom: the association's emblematic teddy bear.

At the end of the Tour de France, all the efforts made are translated into a donation by E.LECLERC to support the cause of Mécénat Chirurgie Cardiaque.


Domitys has a heart

To highlight the first French stages of the 109th edition, residents and seniors from the Domitys and seniors from Hauts-de-France (the region hosting the start of the Tour) took on the challenge of walking a few kilometers of the 2022 route.

A great challenge for a good cause.

Equipped with electric bikes, the participants were able to share this experience with their friends and family, and especially with Bernard Thévenet, two-time winner of the Tour de France and sponsor of the operation.

The challenge was met with flying colours during this wonderful human and sporting adventure!
