After many musical and sports meetings this summer, the Monegasque association continues its fight against pediatric cancers and rare diseases. But this time with the crossing of the Alps of hope on a bike by Thierry Pérez, seasoned athlete in remission of a brain tumor. The goal is to reach 100,000 € in 143 days remaining.

Divided into seven stages with 647km and 17,481m of elevation gain, this human adventure is first and foremost a challenge for Thierry Pérez, who is now recovering from a brain tumor. The start, initially planned with four team-mates, will be done only with his father, for the following car. But despite everything, the athlete keeps his goal in mind, to travel the road of the Alps to deliver a message: the fight against pediatric cancer and rare diseases continues.

143 days to participate

To support this project as well as medical research, the Flavien Foundation seeks to raise funds through a digital kitty that ends in 143 days. Today only 2% of the sum requested has been obtained. “The amount is not reached and it does not matter. The action is beautiful and the awareness too. Thierry Pérez wants to make his contribution to the association by accomplishing this feat. I’m proud of him, it’s an example of bravery“, says Denis Maccario, creator of the association.
