The Foundation was a main partner of the Relay Night, which took place on December 4th 2018 at the Grand Palais in Paris. Organized by the Fondation des Femmes, the race raised more than 220,000 euros to support community-based projects and to raise awareness about violence against women.
Danièle Kapel-Marcovici, President and CEO of the RAJA Group and President of the RAJA-Danièle Marcovici Foundation, opened the third edition of the Relay Night by addressing a committed message to all participants:
“We are thrilled to be a main partner of the Relay Night for this 3rd edition, hosted this year in this beautiful and historic venue, and to help raise funds for associations working on the ground with women who have been victims of violence. I would like to salute all the runners present this evening who are working together to join forces in this cause. I am convinced that sport contributes to personal achievement and fosters solidarity and teamwork!”
More than 60 collaborators of the RAJA Group and CENPAC raised up to take a strong stand against violence against women. For almost 2 hours and forty minutes they passed the relay and together ran over 89 kilometers.
Thanks to their participation and those of the 4000 participants, more than €220 000 were collected. These funds will be donated to associations that fight violence against women.
The Foundation’s stand was made from RAJA cartons, as was the entire scene of the event thanks to artist Gad Weil. Throughout the evening, the participants could “upset gender stereotypes.” A successful playful animation!
