Marathon Day: The solidarity event for Bolloré Group's employees

Cyrille Bolloré

CEO of Bolloré Transport & Logistics

Every year in September, the teams mobilize, on the same day, at the same time, to walk or run 5 kilometers for a charity. This year, we have again decided to support SOS Villages d’Enfants, which has been fighting to improve children’s daily lives since 1970. Thanks to the funds collected in 2018, many projects have been set up and others are pending. I am proud of the increasing size of this event each year and I would like to thank all of our employees for taking part.

Marathon day is the solidarity event for Bolloré Group's employees. This year, the number of entries beat all records, with 17,402 participants in 104 countries. The Group, which supports young people every day through its sponsorship actions, chose again to support SOS Villages d’Enfants.

Every year, the event is growing. An increasing number of employees is joining this great moment. Humility, Excellence, Courage, Solidarity, Agility & Innovation, are the values that will be shared by all during the Marathon Day.
