OUR SOLIDARITY TRAILERS FOR THE UTMB 2022

THANK YOU TO OUR SOLIDARITY TRAILERS !

The Foundation of the French Academy of Medicine and Greffe de vie are proud to present the 12 runners who will wear a solidarity bib under their colors during the UTMB 2022 (August 22-28).

A big thank you to Tiphaine, Jean-Emmanuel, Julien, Christophe, Stéphane, Philippe, Pierre-Yves, our two Loïc, Fabien, Pierre and Sébastien for their support and solidarity.

We wish them good luck and all the success in the realization of this extreme sporting event. Our teams will be on site at the time of the event to encourage them and raise awareness about organ donation.

To support us is to support the cause of organ donation and to fight for a better medicine in the world.

THE OPERATION OF SOLIDARITY BIBS ON THE UTMB

Since the beginning of its history, the UTMB® has always wanted to associate the energy of the event with a spirit of solidarity, and so the race has developed several mechanisms to raise funds for partner charities. Runners can support one of the partner associations by making a donation of 2000€, paid directly or through sponsors (individuals or private), via solidarity bibs.

For the runner, it is also the possibility to guarantee his registration to one of the races (in the respect of the rules in force). The Foundation of the French Academy of Medicine has integrated for several years the actions led by Greffe de vie, dedicated to the organs donations. They organize together the operation of the solidarity bibs on the UTMB. More information on our page of the solidarity bibs of the UTMB.

RUN FOR GREFFE DE VIE AND THE FOUNDATION OF THE FRENCH ACADEMY OF MEDICINE (FAM)

In 2020, France recorded 1 200 fewer transplants due to the health crisis.

Nous accompagner, c’est porter la cause du don d’organes et lutter pour un meilleur accès à la santé pour tous.

Since the beginning of its history, the UTMB® has always wanted to combine the energy of the event with a spirit of solidarity.

The race has therefore developed several schemes to raise funds for partner charities. Runners can support one of the partner associations by making a donation of €2,000, paid directly or through patrons (individuals or private individuals).

For the runner, it is the possibility of guaranteeing his or her registration for one of the races (in compliance with the regulations in force).

The Fondation de l’Académie de Médecine has for several years hosted and supported the actions carried out by Greffe de Vie, dedicated to organ donations.

So do like Anthony, Jocelyne, Virginie, Jean-Paul, Pierre-Yves, Fabien, Patrick, Eric, Sébastien, Nicolas, Thierry and Philippe who supported us in 2020!

Supporting us means supporting the cause of organ donation and fighting for better access to health for all.

Practical information

For the runner, taking a solidarity number means guaranteeing his registration to one of the races by making a donation of 2000€ directly to one of the associations supported by the organization (in compliance with the regulations in force). The runner can be supported by the company or companies, the person or persons, of his choice to raise the sum. Donors, companies or individuals, will receive a tax receipt allowing them to obtain a tax deduction of 60% for companies and 66% for individuals.

Registration via a solidarity bib takes place from December 7 to December 19, 2021.

 

Registration process

– The runner goes to his runner’s space and clicks on “Reserve a solidarity/health/environment bib”, then chooses the association he wishes to support as well as the race he wishes to run.

– The runner and the association receive a confirmation email.

– The association sends a link for the donation to the runner.

– The donor then has 7 days to pay the chosen association 2000 € and thus confirm the reservation of the race number.

– The association informs UTMB® once the payment has been made

– UTMB® then contacts the runner to give him/her the special registration procedure.

If the donation is not made within the time limit, the number will be put back into play.

NB: in case the maximum quota of solidarity race numbers is reached, additional reservations will be put on the waiting list.

 

Important : A registration via a solidarity/health/environment bib is subject to the same rules as a normal registration (qualifying points, registration fee, etc…) with the difference that the runner does not go through the draw (see the race rules).

The donor will not be able to recover all or part of his donation. From the moment the runner registers, he/she is subject to the same race rules as all the others, including if he/she cancels his/her registration, he/she will be reimbursed a variable amount depending on the date of the cancellation.

If you were a Solidarity runner in 2020 and you have not yet benefited from the priority registration, you will be able to use this priority in 2022 (provided you meet the registration criteria, especially regarding experience points). For those who do not want to, can not use this registration in 2022, they can still do so in 2023.

Registration for a chance to win a solidarity bib for the UTMB 2022

Registration for a chance to win a solidarity bib for the UTMB 2022

For the 2022 edition of the Ultra Trail du Mont Blanc (UTMB), the Fondation de l’Académie de Médecine (FAM) and Greffe de vie have the opportunity to offer trailers the chance to win 2 solidarity race numbers worth 2,000 euros each, thanks to the generosity of their patrons.

This concerns all the races of the UTMB 2022 (UTMB®, CCC®, TDS® and OCC).

 

What is a solidarity race number?

Since the beginning of its history, the UTMB® has always wanted to associate the energy of the event with a spirit of solidarity.

The race has therefore developed several schemes to raise funds for partner charities. Runners can support one of the partner associations by making a donation of €2,000, paid directly or through sponsors (individuals or private individuals).

For the runner, it is the possibility of guaranteeing his or her registration for one of the races (in compliance with the regulations in force), without going through the draw.

For several years, the FAM has been hosting and supporting the activities of Greffe de vie, dedicated to organ donation. In order to raise awareness of this cause, the FAM and Greffe de Vie have decided to join forces with the UTMB®, an international sporting event, to develop the solidarity bibs project. More information on this association on the dedicated page on the UTMB website.

By running for the FAM and Greffe de vie, you can actively contribute to

 

Promote organ donation

  • – Promote the new law on organ donation for which Greffe de vie has been working for several years until its adoption and implementation on January 1st 2017. This law will make it possible to save several hundred additional lives per year.
  • – On 14 October 2021, the Greffes + collective (of which Greffe de vie is a member), organised the first National Organ Donation Conference. The aim of these meetings was to bring together and associate all the actors around the sharing and dissemination of good practices related to organ donation. The objective is to be able to quickly achieve “more removals for more transplants” by collectively bringing proposals for action to the public authorities that will remove the existing obstacles. A Manifesto for organ donation emerged from this event. Find it with the event videos here.

 

Spreading the culture of donation

  • – This is the most effective way to raise awareness among the general public. It is also to put organ donation back at the heart of the news through awareness campaigns by encouraging each citizen to become aware of this fundamental act of solidarity. On 22 June 2019, at the initiative of the Greffe de vie and the Greffes+ collective, the associations campaigning for organ donation, for the first time united, have decided to adopt the “green ribbon” as a symbol of fraternity: “All recipients, all donors”.

 

Supporting the FAM and Greffe de vie means supporting the cause of organ donation and making the best of health accessible to as many people as possible.

If you wish to register for a chance to win a solidarity bib, please fill in the form below :

Timetable: the draw will take place the 30/11/2021.

 

Important information:

– The solidarity number won only concerns the donation of 2000€ and not the registration fees for each race. The latter will remain the responsibility of the runner.
– The runner must also meet the selection criteria for the UTMB (points…). More information on these criteria and the fees can be found on the race website: https://utmbmontblanc.com/fr/
– This registration form only concerns runners who wish to won for a solidarity number. If you wish to take a classic solidarity number and make a donation to Greffe de vie and the FAM, please follow the usual procedure for solidarity numbers (more information by clicking here).

 

The practical details of how to take these winning bibs will be explained to the winners.

 

Rules of procedure for the draw : click here.

Feedback about the 2021 UTMB

FEEDBACK ABOUT THE 2021 EDITION OF THE ULTRA TRAIL DU MONT-BLANC

Following its cancellation in 2020 for sanitary reasons, the FAM and Greffe de Vie have participated together again in 2021 for the solidarity bibs of the Ultra Trail du Mont-Blanc (UTMB).

11 runners participated in this wonderful week where different races followed one another. A huge thank you to all our bibs of this edition, who ran while support high the cause of organ donation.

Anthony, Virginie, Jean-Paul, Pierre-Yves, Jocelyne, Fabien, Patrick, Sébastien, Nicolas, Thierry and Philippe: bravo and thank you for your support.

A big thank you also to the organization of the race and more particularly to the solidarity commission (Jacqueline and Sylvie) for their welcome and their support for more than nine years.

This edition was special because Jean-Paul Delpierre, one of our runners in solidarity, is suffering from Charcot disease. Jean-Paul is a passionate trailer who had always dreamed of doing the UTMB. Unfortunately affected by this incurable disease, his dream was impossible to realize. But his friends and their incredible determination made it possible. Passionate and supportive trailers, they decided to put together a team of 40 trailers to take turns carrying Jean-Paul in a joëlette along the UTMB route and thus make his dream come true. To complete this action and to make it even more solidary, Jean-Paul wished to take a solidarity bib and run in support of Greffe de vie and organ donation.

The FAM and Greffe de vie warmly thank Jean-Paul and all his friends for their exceptional action and solidarity, and for having associated them to this wonderful project.

We would also like to thank the race organizers who made this exceptional participation possible.

We are expecting more and more of you next year for this crazy adventure that will be the UTMB 2022.

Watch the arrival of Jean-Paul Delpierre

Here is the testimony of Jeremy, one of Jean-Paul’s trailers, who explains to us, with this beautiful text, their adventure:

The commitment of a poet is to keep mooring the humanity between men… We have all been poet the time of this human and solidarity adventure. Artist Storyteller of a beautiful story to an amazed public met on the trails. Telling and writing a beautiful page of our life. The love for JP animates us and unites us to carry us and make us turn towards high summits. United against this disease, we told her during this strong moment of friendship that she will not win. As a pilgrimage, we went there! We were there, with our heads in the clouds. Perched and welded on these majestic rocks that it is still complicated to put back foot.

An imaginary still unknown until today. Surveying, climbing this new immaculate road. It was extraordinary, strewn with stars, suns in these sceneries that the mountain offered us. We discovered ourselves to be reeds, pushed to pierce holes in the right places so that the breath of life could pass through and the most beautiful music could come out. The purity of a great generosity in each of us. I could see many stars shining in JP’s eyes and countless smiles shaking my soul. The success was built through the confidence of a man who was so strong by his physical and mental commitment. This hero with a heart of gold! Spending countless hours in this joëlette with this blind trust in our hands. Some brave men in particular, linked by this strong friendship, did not give up. Always present at the front in this ordeal as in life. At the slightest blow of Trafalgar it is the friendship which took the watch. It was friendship that showed them the north and when they were in distress, their arms would call out S.O.S. They were like semaphores. Friends first.

Marked by this adventure I return with a light heart. I have just found a little more meaning to my existence. Wouldn’t it be the notion of happiness that takes shape in front of us. The commitment to bring support and happiness in the lives of others. The awareness that happiness is only real when it is shared. Altruism in this quest for the impossible. To realize that the impossible is in the realm of the imaginary. To make this promise a reality!

What is a solidarity bib?

Since the beginning of its history, the UTMB® has always wanted to associate the energy of the event with a spirit of solidarity.

The race has therefore developed several mechanisms to raise funds for partner charities. Runners can support one of the partner associations by making a donation, paid directly or through sponsors (individuals or private).

For the runner, it is the possibility to guarantee his registration to one of the races (in the respect of the rules in force), and to run for a cause which is close to his heart.

The FAM has been sheltering and supporting for several years the actions led by the Greffe de vie, dedicated to organ donation.

The runner can be supported by the anyone or companies, of his choice to raise the sum. His donors, companies or individuals, will receive a tax receipt allowing them to obtain a tax deduction of 60% for companies and 66% for individuals.
