Volunteer Team Participates in 24 Heures Saint-Pierre
Once again this year, employees of Sakata Vegetables Europe S.A.S. (hereinafter, “SVE”) gathered and participated in 24 Heures Saint-Pierre in order to support children with illness and disabilities. This event is held to raise funds for a hospital that is located in Palavas-les-Flots near Montpellier and that specializes in pediatric treatment for long-term illnesses. The event featured participation by 900 athletes, including more than 200 volunteers and 25 SVE employees.
24 Heures Saint-Pierre raised 264,824 euros, which made the following possible:
15 children with autism are able to continue their education thanks to the Améthyste Project.
80 children with disabilities are able to participate in Human Lab Projects.
Every year, 10,000 children are able to benefit from innovative care at the Saint-Pierre Institute.
SVE is already looking forward to next year’s event!
