Four TSM Students Involved in the Fight against Cystic Fibrosis

Four M1 Sport Management students from TSM are joining forces with the association Vaincre la Mucoviscidose (Overcoming Cystic Fibrosis) to raise public awareness of the fight against this disease during a videoconference on Thursday 11 February 2021 at 2pm. They will also present the golf competition they are organising on Saturday 17 April 2021 in l'Isle-Jourdain to raise funds.

 

Morgane Ponce, Chloé De Gasperi, Clara Quaglio and Chloé Garcia, who are all M1 Sport Management students at TSM, have decided to work for Vaincre la Mucoviscidose, an association recognised as being of public utility.

 

Vaincre la Mucoviscidose

Cystic fibrosis is a rare genetic disease affecting the respiratory tract and digestive system. The association Vaincre la Mucoviscidose supports patients and their families and is the leading private funder of research into this disease in France.

 

A Videoconference to Learn All About Cystic Fibrosis

Our four M1 Sport Management students are organising a videoconference open to all on 11 February 2021 at 2pm to find out more about this disease and discover the work of the association.

On the programme:

  • introduction to the association by a member of the Midi-Pyrénées delegation,
  • introduction of the disease by a young cystic fibrosis patient,
  • introduction of the medical aspect related to the disease, by a specialised nurse.

The conference will be facilitated by the students and the 3 speakers. The link to attend the event will soon be available on Facebook.

 

Fundraising Through Sport

In addition to the videoconference on February 11, Chloé, Morgane, Clara and Chloé will organise a golf competition on Saturday, April 17, 2021 in l'Isle-Jourdain to raise funds. All benefits from the event will be donated to Vaincre la Mucosvicidose.

“We have been very touched by this project, which allows us, at our level, to help improve the daily lives of people suffering from this very serious disease.”
