Telespazio France got involved in solidarity sporting challenge ‘La Course des Lumières’

17 December 2021

Once again this year, Telespazio France made a point of showing its commitment to a good cause and participated in ‘La Course des Lumières’ in Toulouse. This sporting and federating event, composed of running and walking challenges for the benefit of cancer research, was an opportunity for 15 of our employees to join forces and boost their team spirit, in order to help research take a further step forward against disease.

Taking place from November 12 to 27 in Toulouse, 15 collaborators from the various sites of Telespazio France actively took part in this great movement of solidarity, which makes sense with the strong values carried daily by all employees and the Corporate Social Responsibility approach, supported by the company.

Last year, we really missed this great illustration of social bond and face-to-face team sharing, because of COVID crisis and remote working development. Congratulations to our 15 "carriers of lights" who wore Telespazio’s colors high! We hope many of you will want to take up the challenge next year!
