Another way to support cancer research.
Cancer is a global scourge that will affect 1 in 3 people in developed countries by 2025. Despite enormous therapeutic advances, cancer still has a tragic outcome in half the cases. To change this, the Fournier-Majoie Foundation supports innovative cancer research projects by combining entrepreneurial spirit and philanthropy.
It’s an opportunity for everyone to take up a sporting challenge, a personal challenge, to push back one's limits to support in joy, good humour and effort:
Everyone can participate in their own way, even if they are not sportsmen or women!
Your company, your friends, your family, your colleagues can sponsor you. They will encourage you in your sporting endeavours and thus contribute to supporting the work of researchers in finding new therapeutic solutions for patients.
The funds raised will support the innovative and very promising project "The cloak of invisibility" which could increase the effectiveness of targeted therapies against many cancers by up to 10 times, killing tumour cells while sparing healthy cells.
Join us and create your own friendly sports challenge by inviting your family, colleagues and friends to sponsor your effort.
Share a unique experience with other Venture Philanthropists who are sensitive to the cause and who support the mission of the Foundation "Empowering entrepreneurs to crush cancer".
Give yourself great memories!
Of shared effort
Of sweat, cramps, blisters
Of ears lulled by the entertainment,
Of bodies carried by the 40,000 participants
Of comfort and pride in having exceeded your limits
Of sharing and exchange at the finish line
Your challenge will remain an unforgettable moment!

In targeted therapy against cancer, 'missiles' (called ADCs) are aimed at cancer cells in a highly selective way to release cytotoxic agents. In this way, they kill the harmful cells, while sparing the healthy ones. The problem is that these missiles, carried by the blood, pass through the liver where they can be eliminated, reducing the strike force on the one hand and causing unwanted toxicity to this vital organ on the other.
The cloak of invisibility, developed by Mablink Bioscience, hides the missiles from the liver filter cells and allows them to continue their hunt. Initial results indicate that this technology has a 7 to 10 times better efficacy/tolerance ratio than conventional ADCs. After very positive results in the pre-clinical stage, the aim is to bring this project to the clinical stage within 18 months, for the benefit of the first patients.
The Foundation aims to raise €880,000 to support this project.
Each participant is asked to raise a minimum of € 248 (€ 124 for under 18y) via their fundraising page
Concerned about transparency and the impact of donations, the founder has provided a separate endowment to cover all the operating and communication costs of the Foundation. In this way, your entire donations are allocated to scientific projects.

It is also possible to support a complete team, in which case the donations will automatically be divided equally among all the pages of the members registered at the time of the donation.
To support a participant, look for the name of his page with the search tool at the top of the page and then click on "I give". If you can't find it, ask them to send you the direct link to their collection page.
Your name, first name and email address will be sent to the person/team leader according to the page you have supported.
Your first name will be listed on the page that benefited from your donation. If you wish to remain anonymous, click on "Make my donation anonymous" and your name will not be published.
In order to ensure transparency and impact of donations, the founder has provided a separate endowment to cover all operating and communication costs of the Foundation. In this way, 100% of donations go directly to scientific cancer research projects.
We have chosen reliable and experienced partners (Raise&Shine and Stripe) for donations and personal data registration. Your data will be handled discreetly/confidentially and securely.
If the sum of your donations made to the Fournier-Majoie Foundation during the fiscal year (2022) is €40 or more, you will receive in the first quarter of 2023 a tax certificate issued by the King Baudouin Foundation which manages donations through the Fournier-Majoie Foundation Fund. You will be able to benefit from a tax reduction of 45% of the amount of your donation.
