In 2012, when we were having lunch together at work, we realized that several of us wanted to take part in the La Parisienne foot race for women. Competing on behalf of the company seemed obvious because of the close parallel between its corporate values and those of sport in general.  The challenge at the time was to find 12 of us to form a corporate team. That year, there were 42 of us proudly wearing our VINCI Energies t-shirt in the streets of Paris.  Since then, we have gone from strength to strength and this year, 320 of us will be on the starting line.
But more importantly, there will be 320 women committed to supporting the actions of the Mécénat Chirurgie Cardiaque charity. Our pounding feet will help a child to benefit from technical and human resources that are difficult to access in their own country. To give them a new heart that works properly. So they can run with other children. Go to school. Smile again. Just that. Nothing more.
Join us in this human adventure and help us collect the 12,000 euros needed for an operation. It is an ambitious goal but the happiness of a family comes at that price.  Your donations can help the project to be a success. Give what you can. There are no small donations. Every euro counts.
Somewhere in the world, there is a child. They don’t know it yet, but together, we are going to save their life.

Braving the oceans to save children with Initiatives-Cœur

VINCI Energies has teamed up with the sailboat Initiatives-Cœur to support the work of Mécénat Chirurgie Cardiaque. Our goal is to enhance the sailboat’s performance, boost the visibility of its cause and thereby save even more children.

Worldwide, nearly one in every 1,000 children is born with a heart defect.

The humanitarian organisation Mécénat Chirurgie Cardiaque enables these children to come to France for a medical operation when they cannot receive treatment in their home country due to a lack of financial or technical resources. Together, let’s take action!
