RUNNING IN SOLIDARITY FOR CHILDREN WITHOUT CANCER
Since the creation of the association at the end of 2011, in order to raise funds and mobilize as many people as possible against childhood cancer, we have chosen to run. Run for a hope, run for a future, run for research, run for a world with cancer-free children.
10 years later, these four ways of running still represent the “Children without Cancer” race. If so many paths and kilometers have already been covered, the marathon continues in order to heal more children.
At the time, this type of event was almost unheard of in France. Since then, this race has developed to the point of becoming one of the biggest solidarity races in France and Europe with the exceptional figure of 12 million euros collected over the 12 editions.
At the national domain of Saint-Cloud (10 editions) or on the Parvis de la Défense (2 editions); to run against childhood cancer, you have to mobilize and collect donations from generous donors (families, friends, acquaintances, colleagues, etc.).
In addition, since 2018, the “Children without Cancer race” model has been deployed in Belgium, Luxembourg and Italy.
In 2020, we decided to pool our funds to fund research together and thus created the unique European call for projects Fight Kids Cancer.
Thanks to nearly 200,000 donors and thanks to our generous partners, Imagine for Margo has donated 100% of the donations collected to research. In 10 years, 35 programs have been co-financed and 28 new treatments are now offered to children with cancer.

RAISING AWARENESS OF THE LARGEST NUMBER OF PEOPLE TO FIGHT CHILDHOOD CANCER
In order to raise awareness among all French people about the leading cause of death of children and teenagers by disease in France and in Europe, Imagine for Margo is fortunate to be able to count on the generosity of the media.
Thanks to them, to the immense generosity of our media partners and to the support of Mika, it has been possible to reach millions of French men and women on street corners, at the movie theater, at a subway stop or during their morning reading.
Indeed, for 10 years, 8 national campaigns, representing more than 10 million euros of exposure, have been offered free of charge by the media to support the work of the association.
These campaigns by photographer Peter Lindbergh and director Steven Kidd have been broadcast on television, in the press, in movie theaters, on the internet and on billboards. They raised awareness on a large scale on the importance of supporting research against childhood cancer.
