For the 12th consecutive year, volunteers from five Montardon associations – Los Esvagats, Montardon d’Achille, Montardon Accro’bike, and the Badminton and Hiking-Mountain sections of the rural center – participated in the Parcours du coeur on Saturday May 4.

As the weather was not good in the morning, there were not many of them on the starting line for the 10 km. Some children braved the raindrops to run for a good cause and the members of the Badminton section of the rural center hit a few shuttlecocks.

This day was not only made for movement, it also aimed to reduce cardiovascular diseases, responsible for nearly 150,000 deaths per year in France. All day long, it was possible to ask questions about blood donation, organ donation thanks to the “Cercle Bleu” association or about cardiovascular diseases. The Pau Béarn Heart Health Club, the League against cancer and loss of autonomy as well as a doctor answered participants’ questions. An animation, with simulation of loss of autonomy, as well as advice for caregivers were offered by the “Prevoir Assureur solution vie” group.
