ACTION CONTRE LA FAIM
Every year, KCO helps the NGO Action Against Hunger in organizing and expanding the Inter-Company Challenge Against Hunger charity event, which takes place in June at the La Defense Esplanade in Paris and La Place Bellecour in Lyon.
The event in Paris brings together thousands who work at one of La Defense’s many companies. They can contribute in the fight against global hunger by running, walking or doing Zumba, yoga or boxing for an hour and half.
The challenge runs on a simple concept: companies that take part in the challenge promise to give 15 euros to Action Against Hunger for every kilometer their employees run or walk or every quarter of an hour they spend doing Zumba, yoga or boxing. In addition to sport-based events, the 4,000 sq. m. “Companies’ village” offers many activities and entertainment options for both participants and supporters.
In 2017, 4,700 employees from over 100 different companies came together to raise €800,000 to support Action Against Hunger in their missions in Ivory Coast and Jordan.
