the essential
A new edition of Belles monteres on the theme “Bob and Marcel” will take place on Sunday May 19, in La Salvetat-Belmontet (Tarn-et-Garonne). One objective: to fight against Charcot disease.

This day with a backdrop of sporting events but in a festive setting is also a large gathering in the face of an important cause: the fight against Charcot’s disease. Despite the seriousness of this disease, this day, which will take place on Sunday May 19, 2024 in La Salvetat-Belmontet and also the evening before in Monclar-de-Quercy (Tarn-et-Garonne), is intended to be friendly and bring hope. .

The sector has experienced several cases, and it is always with the same determination that the organizers do not give up, because every effort ends up being rewarded, and with the help of science, hope must be a motivating element for all of us.
This year will be the tenth edition. Success has never failed thanks to the mobilization of a public that has become loyal from the first hour.

ALS, aka Charcot disease

Amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS), known as Charcot disease, named after the doctor who discovered it, is included in the list of neurological diseases. To date, and even if this may still seem small, advances have enabled patients to live better. It is with this in mind that this day is proposed, knowing that in terms of layout, with the aim of better comfort for sick people, every little extra point is a real little victory…
Program. 10 kilometer run (€12), 7 km hike (€6), 1 km hike for children aged 7 to 10 (free).
Possibility of having lunch on site thanks to numerous stands of local producers and several food trucks. A refreshment bar will be run by officials of the local organizing association. Entertainment all day long offered by the E3M rock workshop, but also, we will have the pleasure of meeting the duo Rac & Nat who, to the sound of the accordion, will give a dancing concert where good humor will be infectious. The carriages will be faithful to the post to allow children and adults to enjoy the horse-drawn ride. A raffle and other entertainment will be available

A film on Charcot’s disease Saturday at the cinema

At the request of the La Belle Montée association, the film “Invincible Summer” will be screened on Saturday May 18 at 9 p.m., at the Monclar-de-Quercy cinema.
Single price: €5. The proceeds will be entirely donated to research against Charcot’s disease.
This screening is part of the tenth edition of the sporting and festive day Les Belles Montées which will take place on Sunday May 19, in the village of La Salvetat-Belmontet.
The film “Invincible Summer” is a very powerful testimony from Olivier Goy who, after learning that he suffered from Charcot’s disease which condemned him in the short term, decided to fully enjoy the rest of his existence.

A moving film
DDM – Prod.

This disease now leaves no one indifferent, which is why solidarity is one of the means which allows us to join the fight but also research in order to best support patients but above all which aims for the glimmers of hope which, one day can- being, will open the doors to healing. This collective and universal wish begins through such gatherings.
The presence of a large audience aware of this cause during the screening is one of the levels of this solid challenge.
