OL Foundation: Young hospital patients get active at Groupama Stadium
The special day, organized by Léa Cuisinier, Coline Courtois, Morgane Espitalier and Roxane Le Pallac - Adapted Physical Activity specialists and trainees at the HFME (in the framework of a master 2 IGAPAS certification) - allowed the children to engage in physical activities.
The children (accompanied by one of their parents) were welcomed at Groupama Stadium at 9:00 am and underwent orientation at the H Experience lounge, followed by a visit to the OL Museum.
After the lunch break, the children went to the men's professional team's training ground for a giant game of the goose, with quizzes and different sports challenges added to the activities. They were joined by teammates who included OL staff members: Abdel Redissi and Jérémy Jacquemot (physiotherapists), Antonin Da Fonseca (physical trainer), Corine Petit (former international player), and even got a surprise visit from Lyon defender Marcelo.
By the time the activities ended at 16:00, the children were full of gifts, courtesy of the OL Foundation, and, most importantly... smiles!
