THE CHALLENGE AGAINST HUNGER IS A CHARITY SPORT EVENT FOR ALL BUSINESSES AND THEIR EMPLOYEES. PARTICIPATION IN THE CHALLENGE BRINGS EMPLOYEES TOGETHER THROUGH A TEAM-BUILDING SPORTING EVENT. THE GOAL? TO DO SOME EXERCISE AND EXCEL ALONGSIDE COLLEAGUES WHILE DOING A GOOD DEED.
Launched in 2007, the Challenge Against Hunger is a charity sport event for businesses. Organised in Paris and the surrounding region, it brings together thousands of people through different sporting activities, such as walking, Zumba, running, yoga, climbing, football or even boxing training. It is a sports event with a celebratory atmosphere in which participants represent their respective companies.
The Challenge Against Hunger encourages team building in your company. It enables your employees to strengthen bonds through sport while supporting our association so that we can combat malnutrition, a problem exacerbated by the climate emergency. This common motivation will drive your colleagues to do a good deed and consolidate their commitment to social causes.
It is thanks to your teams’ energy and your organisation’s support that Action contre la Faim can continue to carry out its humanitarian missions.
The Challenge Against Hunger is the chance for all businesses – whether small, medium or large – to take part in a fun, multi-sport, team-building charity event that supports Action contre la Faim’s programmes.
Through this event, Action contre la Faim seeks to mobilise as many businesses as possible in the fight against climate change. The climate emergency is exacerbating the problem of world hunger. As extreme weather events intensify (cyclones, floods, droughts), millions of people’s food security is under threat.
Donations allow Action contre la Faim to mobilise human and material resources rapidly in emergency situations, as well as funding priority missions identified by the organisation’s heads of operations.
In the case of the last edition, the money raised was allocated to our water access, sanitation and hygiene programmes (in countries such as Madagascar, Jordan and the Central African Republic). The funds are also used for emergencies and needs encountered on the ground. Thanks to your donations, we can continue to fulfil the needs of the most vulnerable populations. Every euro counts.
The company sponsors a number of its employees , then on the big day, they do one of the sports available (depending on the town). For every 6 minutes of activity or every lap (in the case of walking and running), the company makes a donation linked to each colleague’s physical effort. Because every euro counts, so every effort counts too.
Thanks to the energy used up by each participant and their company’s support, our association receives funds to develop our humanitarian missions all over the world.
A number of sports are on offer at the event. Participants can choose between walking, running, yoga and Zumba. Depending on the town, boxing, 5-a-side football or climbing may also be available. There is something for all tastes and all fitness levels.
Each year, several events are organised, in Paris La Défense, Boulogne-Billancourt, Lyon, Nantes and elsewhere. Find all the information on our website challengecontrelafaim.org
Want to mobilise your teams in France and abroad?
Step into the shoes of a humanitarian worker by taking part in Action contre la Faim’s digital challenge.
With your teams, you will take part in humanitarian and sports missions while exploring Action contre la Faim’s programmes.
Humanitarian missions are more essential than ever and depend greatly on fundraising events. Contribute by taking part in the Connected Challenge, whose principles are exactly the same as those of the Challenge Against Hunger.
The Connected Challenge allows employees to step into the shoes of a humanitarian worker at Action contre la Faim who specialises in environmental and climate issues.
The idea is simple: for a few weeks, the participants will have to overcome daily sports challenges by walking, running, cycling or doing yoga. The money raised will help to fund Action contre la Faim’s activities.
By signing up to this digital charity challenge, you and your colleagues will be supporting the work of a humanitarian NGO in various vital fields, including access to water, food security and climate change.
During the challenge, you will be able to make a virtual trip to different countries to overcome daily sports challenges, by walking, running, cycling and doing yoga. The kilometres you cover will be recorded and accumulated in the ConnectedAgainstHunger app. This way, teams can challenge each other as part of an inter-team and inter-company league table.
Exercising while doing a good deed and having fun: that’s what the Connected Challenge is all about.
