A sunny day in Tavaux

1300 children joined the third edition of ‘The Daily Mile Go Run For Fun’ in Tavaux.

On Friday 2nd June the third edition of the event “The Daily Mile Go Run For Fun” took place in Tavaux. The event this year brought together 1300 children in between five and ten year old from 15 schools near the industrial site of Tavaux. More than 60 volunteers helped deliver the event.

The event, which is completely free for schools and organised by INEOS Inovyn employees at the Tavaux plant and Tavaux Town Hall, in collaboration with the Ministry of Education, was an initiative taken by INEOS CEO Jim Ratcliffe in 2013. It is intended to communicate to children the desire to engage in physical activity and thus fight against obesity.

This year Valentine Chapelotte, Jura athlete, came to support. Valentine answered questions on stage before hosting the warm-up session with music and she then ran alongside the children.

Thank you to the children and to the teachers for their participation and the good atmosphere!
