Every year, InnoVista Sensors™ employees from all locations worldwide engage in a Challenge to help raise fund for local charity foundations.
This year, InnoVista Valence and Alès chose to create a joint project.Employees from InnoVista Sensors™ Valence had the choice between cycling (VTT or road bike) or running from Valence to Ales. On their arrival, participants were welcome by a friendly picnic before engaging in a hard fought Pétanque tournament! Employees also get the chance to visit the site. While some were having fun, some highly motivated Mountain biking Gauls were still riding among the Cevennes landscape and arrived very late in the evening.
Jean-François Hilaire, Sensors Technical Manager, was among those braves and shares his journey: “The InnoVista Sensors™ Challenge is anchored in Crouzet’s tradition: a yearly event when we all get involved for a good cause. This year, I took in the challenge to ride from Valence to Alès by mountain bike! Of course, the journey required some difficulties as its length and steep trails it contained appealed to physical commitment. In those moments, cohesion and team spirit come first. Lastly, as any event needs to be shared, we were warmly welcome by our colleagues in Alès! This adventure shows one thing: all together, we are stronger!”This sport event was part of the global worldwide InnoVista Challenge Sensors™ 2015. All the benefits raised by InnoVista Sensors™ employees were matched by InnoVista Sensors™ and donated to the AFM-Telethon. The French Muscular Dystrophy Association (AFM) is composed of patients and their families who are affected by a genetic, rare and progressive illness that leads to heavy handicaps: neuromuscular diseases. The AFM relies on a combination of professionals it employs and thousands of volunteers who take part in the battle, as well as the patients and their families who form its core and control its strategy. The Telethon takes place the first week-end of December every year with the help of hundreds of thousands of volunteers, millions of participants and lots of artists. The Telethon is also a 30-hour TV show on a public channel. To learn more about the Téléthon and donate to the association:
