Dear Friends and Friends,

It is always very appreciable and comforting for the volunteers that we are to know that all the time spent has not been in vain. The icing on the cake being that we have further strengthened our solidarity approach. Indeed, thanks to your mobilization but also that of our partners and volunteers, we have succeeded in donating nearly €70 000 to various charitable causes, including €59 000 to our major association, “Aviation Sans Frontières”. This is why the entire team of the Vredestin 20 km de Paris team would like to express its sincere thanks to all the runners, volunteers, partners and service providers, who have been instrumental in the success of this great autumn celebration of the race. on foot in Paris.

We will mainly support "le Rire Médecin", whose mission is to give hospitalized children the power to play and laugh to better cope with illness, anxiety and pain, and to support families, help them decompress and to change their outlook on their sick child. Each individual bib purchased will be used to donate €3. As for them, the Vredestein 20 kids of Paris will support "Association Petits Princes" whose goal is to make the dreams of sick children come true, the dream helping them to feel better emotionally and sometimes even physically.

We are pleased to announce the renewal of our partnership with France 3 Paris Ile-de-France for the 2nd consecutive year, our race for the international label will once again be broadcast live on France 3 Paris Ile de France!
