Each year, we are proud to see several hundred of "Coureurs du Coeur" accomplishing challenges each one, more insane than the others in order to support our charity. From crossing the American continent by bike, to the « Summits of my Heart » operation with the aim of climbing the highest peaks of the Pyrenees, through birthdays and solidarity weddings, one thing is certain, we can do almost anything we want to save children with heart defects around the world!
And you, what will you do to help us save children?
Crossing the globe, walking on the Way of Saint James, trail or rally... Join the Coureurs du Coeur and make your sporting challenge a charity event!
Don't need anything for your birthday? Why not ask for a donation instead of a gift by dedicating your birthday?
Wether it is a birth, a wedding, a concert or even a movie, any occasion is good to raise funds.
Because we want your experience with us to be a success, we have prepared a series of tips and tools to help you make your project a success: a guide to create your fundraising page, goodies, videos, a Facebook cover, testimonials, etc.
SUMMITS OF MY HEART
Claire has set herself an ambitious goal: to climb the 90 summits of the French Pyrenees and to raise 90,000€ for Mécénat Chirurgie Cardiaque, one cent for each heartbeat required to climb them.
She imagined this project in honor of her daughter, who underwent open heart surgery 10 years ago, a long and great struggle for this family.
A wonderful challenge of which we are particularly proud. Don't give up Claire!
DEUX PETITS PAS POUR UN COEUR
(TWO SMALL STEPS FOR A HEART)
The Chiron family is one of these extraordinary foster families who, in addition to welcoming sick children into their home, decide to raise funds to pay for their operations!
From organizing a trail, to selling items and mobilizing their school, nothing stops them!
The whole family does its best to save hearts!
THE BIKINGS BROS' HEART
It is the story of two brothers who dream of traveling the world by bike and... who do it. The goal : to ride from Quebec City to Ushuaïa in 2 years, that is 36,000 km!
Jérémy and Vincent have calves made of concrete but above all a golden heart. They have decided to try to raise 1€ per kilometer cycled to save children with heart problems in Latin America.
COMPOSTELLE POUR UN COEUR
(COMPOSTELA FOR A HEART)
Last August, Pascale Vatan left her home in Sancerre to walk the Way of St. James. 1 851 km later, she reached the end with more than 12 000 € of donations needed to operate Fatoumata, an adorable 2-year-old Mauritanian girl.
Reinvigorated since this meeting, Pascale will soon put on her walking shoes to take up a new challenge and save a second little heart.
