OL Fondation : une journée au stade sous le signe de l’activité physique pour des enfants suivis à l’HFME
On Tuesday, May 21, thirty children from the Hôpital Femme Mère Enfant had a fun-filled, sportive day at Groupama Stadium, thanks to the partnership initiated last fall with the OL Foundation.

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!
