Why create a fundraising page for the benefit of Mécénat Chirurgie Cardiaque?
Worldwide, 1 in 100 children is born with a heart defect. Cardiac surgery is often the only way to save those children. But these surgeries need advanced medical techniques, which are extremely costly. By fundraising for the benefit of Mécénat Chirurgie Cardiaque, you allow children who cannot benefit from the surgery in their country due to a lack of technical and financial means, to be operated on in France. Because without donation, no action!

For what events can you create a fundraising page?
Whether you decide to take up a sporting challenge, to celebrate a personal moment or to create an event, or because you are a Host Family, every opportunity is good to collect and help us save children with heart defects.
You can also create your fundraising page to obtain a solidarity bib for the SE Marathon de Paris or to the Etape du Tour de France.

What will my fundraising be used for?
100% of the donations on the fundraising pages are donated to Mécénat Chirurgie Cardiaque to finance our actions. Each Euro collected will be used to operate on children with heart defects.
