A CHACUN SON EVEREST

A Chacun Son Everest ! is a non-profit organization founded in 1994 by Doctor Christine Janin, the First French woman who climbed Mount Everest, 8848m.

A Chacun Son Everest ! was built on the parallel between the challenge of climbing a mountain, and the path to recover from cancer.

Our organization, based in Chamonix, takes care of children with cancer or leukemia and women suffering from breast cancer during the tough stage of recovering. Our stays, entirely carried by the organization, are intended to help them « to get better » through the ascension of “their Mount Everest”. Since 1994, 4592 children and 1267 women have been welcomed. So many moments of pride, emotion and victory at the summit...

Our main goal is to give sick children and women the opportunity of a full physical and psychological recovery during a free week in Chamonix.

The week long course in Chamonix allows them :
- to regain confidence in their bodies and theirs capacities,
- to share this experience with others going through the same experience,
- to rebuild their self-respect,
- to realize that they have within them unsuspected qualities such as courage,  willingness,  determination,  hope and desire...qualities of great champions.

Runners's feelings:

"Honestly, the support for the Association is mutual: during hard times and doubt I thought a lot about children. They are the ones who allowed me to find the strength and catch up on the clock. Thank you again! What a crazy week!  Nicolas UTMB® finisher.
