Tower Run: a golden race to fight childhood cancers!

September 30, 2019


For the 2019 edition of the Tower Run, 180 Sanofi runners responded to the Sanofi Espoir Foundation's call for participants. A "vertical" race on the stairs of the Tour Montparnasse In Paris to support medical research against childhood cancers.

On Saturday, September 14, the Tour Montparnasse opened its doors for the third consecutive year to the Tower Run, a sporting and breath-taking solidarity challenge to benefit the "Cure childhood cancer in the 21st century" campaign.

Launched by Frédéric Lemos, father of little Noé who died of cancer at the age of 10, this major fundraising campaign for the Gustave Roussy Foundation aims to raise 10 million euros by 2020 to finance research and enable children with cancer to receive better care.

Among the families, friends and employees of other companies, more than 180 Sanofi employees joined forces with the Sanofi Espoir Foundation, a partner to the event, to climb the 60 floors, or 1,000 steps, of the Montparnasse Tower.

In total, €241,023 was raised to advance research!
