Just one year ago, the students of Phelma created the 17th branch of the French nonprofit “Cheer up!”. The organization helps young adults suffering from cancer to make their dreams come true—like one young man who dreamed of taking part in an off-road automobile race.
The new branch counts around 40 Phelma student members, and is particularly active. Each week, members visit teens and young adults aged 15–25 hospitalized in Grenoble. “Cheer-up!” Phelma also runs a variety of fundraisers, like a campus road race in March that raised around €300.
