More than 200 runners entered the Race Against Cancer organized by Cheer Up! on April 10. The Grenoble INP – Phelma, UGA student nonprofit helps people between the ages of 12 and 25 living with cancer.
The race raised more than €3,000, marking the nonprofit’s post-pandemic comeback.
The funds will be donated to Institut Curie and Fondation de France.
Cheer Up! student volunteers are working hard to get their hospital visits back up and running now that Covid-related restrictions are easing.
At the national level, Cheer Up! provides training, which is required before volunteers can visit with patients. This has also been on hold since 2020, so it is at the top of the Grenoble branch’s agenda.
