Once again, Jean DA COSTA (D0153-FRA) returns to the MARATHON DES SABLES with a team of 8 people to support the association Roseau des Sables. Jean DA COSTA will participate for the 8th time at the MARATHON DES SABLES, and it will be the 7th time he will represent the association.
Jean and his friends are fully aware of the difficulties they will encounter on the MARATHON DES SABLES, but they are extremely motivated: of course the goal of the team is to reach the finnish line, but above all to try to convey the strength, will and courage to all children with serious diseases, to support them in the path of healing.
This 32nd edition of the MARATHON DES SABLES will be special for Jean, his team, and 7 children being healed supported by the association: the children will come to meet the team in the desert during the last stage, accompanied by four adults including a nurse. This operation is financed by the association and will allow the children to live an unforgettable moment, which they can then share with their comrades of the oncology department of the CHU of Reims.

The association Roseau des Sables works with a lot of heart throughout the year for children suffering from cancer and leukemia. Their goal is to improve the conditions of hospitalization of children by buying materials, tutoring, animations, etc.
But the association is also present to support families in difficult times. A project to create a parent's house is also in the pipes, a project that requires a significant financial investment. These homes allow parents to stay with their children during periods of hospitalization or heavy treatment.
