Since its creation in 1986, following a collaboration between parents of sick children and the scientific community, the Telethon has grown over the years to become a major national event with thousands of volunteers gathered each year. Doctoneuro’s members are proud to be a part of it.
The focus on myopathies and neuromuscular diseases is a golden opportunity to spread, in a broader context, knowledge about the functions of the nervous system.
This event, which is dedicated to generosity, was one of the first events Doctoneuro participated to after its creation. Each year, several of our volunteers work on the preparation of “neuroneles” (traditional Alsatian pastries), which are sold to collect money that is then donated to the Association Française contre les Myopathies. We are also pleased to offer, in partnership with the Christian chocolate pastry shop, chocolate neurons and marzipan brains.
Our booth is displayed in the various laboratories of the network, but can also be found during the collective gatherings organized in Strasbourg (Place Kleber, Place Dauphine, University Campus…) by the coordination of the Telethon of the Bas-Rhin. We thank them for their work which allows us to participate in this tremendous surge of generosity.
