Le Marathon du Mont-Blanc supports three causes :

  • L'association "Vaincre les Maladies Lysosomales" - Rare but not alone !

Running for fun and giving to advance medical research.

Merci Club des sports 2016 v2

Because it was clear right from the start that there was strength, VML has chosen to open up to all lysosomal storage diseases, rare and very rare, known and less known. A positive choice as the experience shows that our 53 diseases, although different, confront the parents, patients, doctors and scientists to many common questions and issues. The support synergies, daily support, medical care and scientific approaches have benefited from this joint mobilization and experiences with each other ...

In a proactive approach, the VML Association has set three tasks:

Offer help and support to patients and their families
Foster scientific and medical knowledge
Promote the work of VML and help fund programs
Overcoming Lysosomal Diseases is a non-profit association (Law of 1 July 1901), created in 1990 and recognized of public utility by decree of 6 December 2006.



  • Vaincre la Mucoviscidose - Beat cystic fibrosis vaincre la mucoviscidose

Cystic fibrosis (CF) is an inherited genetic disease that affects the lungs and digestive tract of about 6300 children and adults in France.

"Vaincre la Mucoviscidose" is a non-profit organization created in 1965 by parents of children with CF. The foundation follows 4 goals :

Cure CF by helping and financing research in France and all around Europe

  • Supports children's sports projects !

In 2018, the childrens of 9 sections of Club des sports de Chamonix were able to carry out their sports project thanks to the charity bibs and the money given by the riders.



This year, the mountain bike section of Chamonix Sports Club was awarded a grant from the funds raised through the solidarity bibs for the Mont Bank marathon. The Club, our partners and sponsors, would all like extend our sincere thanks to the runners who will wear these solidarity bibs.

The mountain bike section hosts nearly 90 children from the valley, and although mountain biking is only a seasonal sport in Chamonix, we are a very competitive club, last year winning the overall prize for best club at the Provincial Championships for Young Mountain Bikers (TDJV).

Our plan is to use the funds raised to support our young bikers in training and participation in races, so that we can offer this at the lowest possible cost, and make mountain bike racing accessible to all.

Your generosity, through your donation for your Mont Blanc marathon bib, has allowed 36 children between the ages of 8 to 17 to participate in a training camp over three days in the Buëch area of the Hautes Alpes. This wild environment was perfect for mountain biking across all age groups, and allowed us to both initiate and improve the children’s mountain biking skills.

The camp was also a moment of cohesion, mutual support and sharing between the children, both in their sport but also by living together (camping, preparing meals, looking after their equipment..). Thanks to this grant, we were also able to offer our young mountain bikers a caving session in the Super-Devoluy underground cave system.

We are happy to be able to share this wonderful experience with you through a set of photos from the camp.

We thank you very much for your help and assure you that we have been able to use your donation wisely for the benefit of our children!

This summer Chamonix's Figure Skating club will kick off the new 2016/17 season by heading to Megève for an intensive training course.

The course is open to skaters in the pre-competition and competition groups and has been specially designed to give our team a head start for the new season.

The team will benefit from a mix of training sessions including figure skating, dance, physical fitness and theory lessons to help understand how the new competition rules work. 

Outdoor activities, swimming and cultural visits also form part of the program, helping build camaraderie and reinforcing an already strong team spirit – vital in a sport that many still consider to be individual.
Thanks to donors of Mont-Blanc Marathon charity bips.

Thanks to your contribution to the Club Des Sports, certain projects have come to fruition.Notably, the Equitation Section of the Chamonix “Club des Sports” would like to express their thanks for taking part in the ‘Dossiers Solidatire” or Solidarity Bibs of the Mont Blanc Marathon.

This April, several children of our Section were able to go on a training course at the Laize Riding Centre in Burgundy.This gave them the chance to discover a new region, new instructors, new horses and a new organisation. They also had the opportunity to participate in a show jumping competition and validate their different levels with an exam at the end of the course.They came back ready to start a new competition season and hope to go to the French Championships this coming July!

Without your help, this would not have been possible.

Thank you again and good luck in your future races!

The Chamonix Golf School continues to advance in the development of this sport in the valley. More and more young people are getting a taste for competition, which requires a modern approach to the coaching skills. As part of its sporting development, the golf school has put a special emphasis on a group of more than twenty young motivated players by offering them the opportunity to benefit from technical expertise through evaluations which will help them progress faster and more effectively.

Thank you bibs solidarity for contributing to this program, it may well help some to access departmental or regional selections.




In April, 18 swimmers from CS Chamonix participated in an intensive 10-training course in Loano, Italy to prepare for the last major competitions.

This is the first time that an internship brings together so many people and it is always with a good state of mind that the swimmers have been able to train in an exceptional context: 50-meter pool, heated water and lot of sun !

Thanks to the support of the "dossards solidaires"
