600 Air France staff in the Paris 20k starting blocks
For the third year running, 600 Air France staff will be lining up to take part in the Paris 20k race on Sunday, October 13, 2019.
To promote the practice of sport and well-being among its staff, Air France is providing participants full support and assistance, including a race bib, a dedicated t-shirt sporting the Air France Running colours and a personalized training programme.
For several years, Air France has been conducting a pro-active policy regarding the inclusion of people with a disability, notably by supporting adapted sports initiatives.
The Joëlette one-wheeled wheelchair will enable a company staff member with reduced mobility to take part in the Paris 20k. In his or her position as pilot, the person sitting in the chair will be permanently manoeuvred by two Air France running companions to the cheers of spectators up
to their arrival at the foot of the Eiffel Tower.
