Verlingue is a sponsor of the “Etoiles de la Baie” sporting and family event to raise funds for research into cancer in children, and attendant hospital care.
Led by Romane, 10 years old, and Jean Galfione, the event will take place on Saturday, 22 July at la Pointe de la Torche (29). From 2 pm to 10 pm, there will be many sporting activities (paddle races, children’s runs, hiking), as well as introductory surfing sessions.
8pm marks the start of a 10km race along the beach where several Verlingue staff will take turns in pushing sick children several kilometres using 2 Joëlettes*.
*A joëlette is a small one-wheeled chair pushed and pulled by a team of 6 to 8 runners.
