Supporting the training of disadvantaged young persons thanks to the equipping of sports facilities in a deprived neighborhood
“Sport dans la Ville”, created in 1998, is the main French association for social insertion through sport. Its various programs provide support for the social and professional insertion of almost 4,000 young persons. 26 sports centers are located in the heart of deprived neighborhoods in different cities in the Rhône-Alpes and Ile-de-France regions.
Since 2007, the AccorHotels France teams have participated in the “20km de Paris” race, and have been running in support of an association.
For the 2015 edition, 120 employees ran in support of “Sport dans la Ville”. Their commitment, supported by Solidarity Accor, allowed the installation of new equipment on football fields and basketball courts built by “Sport dans la Ville” in Saint Ouen. The association is thus able to implement its socio-professional support programs for 200 local youths.
The initiatives conducted every day by “Sport dans la Ville” are perfectly in line with the spirit of this race we have been organizing with the AccorHotels teams for several years now: sharing, meeting new people, helping each other, pushing back one’s limits and conviviality! I am proud to participate in this adventure, filled with enriching encounters.
