A CHACUN SON EVEREST

A Chacun Son Everest ! is a non-profit organization founded in 1994 by Doctor Christine Janin, the First French woman who climbed Mount Everest, 8848m.

A Chacun Son Everest ! was built on the parallel between the challenge of climbing a mountain, and the path to recover from cancer.

Our organization, based in Chamonix, takes care of children with cancer or leukemia and women suffering from breast cancer during the tough stage of recovering. Our stays, entirely carried by the organization, are intended to help them « to get better » through the ascension of  “their Mount Everest”. Since 1994, 4561 children and 1243 women have been welcomed. So many moments of pride, emotion and victory at the summit...

Our main goal is to give sick children and women the opportunity of a full physical and psychological recovery during a free week in Chamonix.

The week long course in Chamonix allows them :
- to regain confidence in their bodies and theirs capacities,
- to share this experience with others going through the same experience,
- to rebuild their self-respect,
- to realize that they have within them unsuspected qualities such as courage,  willingness,  determination,  hope and desire...qualities of great champions.

Thanks to the solidarity runners to your engagement and support ! Wear a solidarity race-bib for A Chacun Son Everest ! is a true message of courage and surpassing yourself which you give to these children and women. We would be very happy to welcome you to our house to share a great moment with the children and our team. Many thanks to the UTMB® organization for this partnership.

Feeling about the 2019 edition:

The 2019 edition was once again a success. 30 solidarity bibs and as many sportsmen involved, volunteers and committed to A Chacun Son Everest! As every year, we invite them to share a summit with the children, "their Everest". These moments of sharing and emotion are greatly appreciated by the runners. In the same way, we had a very pleasant time during the solidarity hour where runners, their families and the Association could meet.

"Honestly, the support for the Association is mutual: during hard times and doubt I thought a lot about children. They are the ones who allowed me to find the strength and catch up on the clock. Thank you again! What a crazy week! "Nicolas UTMB® finisher.

We had the chance to see Charlène, one of our supportive runners, represent the Association alongside Christine Janin in the LCI report: https://www.lci.fr/replay/vis-leurs-vies-du-dimanche-22-septembre-2019-2132848.html. Thank you very much for this opportunity!

 

Project 2020 :

In 2020, À Chacun Son Everest! will continue its support actions in the difficult post-cancer phase. We will organize 19 stays for women in remission from breast cancer and 7 internships for children and adolescents with cancer or leukaemia. That is 26 weeks stays of fully cared, and 340 children and women cared for.

The 2020 edition, which will award 25 solidarity bibs, will make it possible to finance the stay of 25 children or women. Thank you very much for this wonderful gesture, of which we are very touched.
