The Virades de l'Espoir is an annual national festive and solidarity event organised by the association "Vaincre la Mucoviscidose". It raises funds for the fight against cystic fibrosis and raises awareness of this disease throughout France.

What is cystic fibrosis? 

It is an invisible genetic disease that progressively destroys the lungs. It causes a thickening of the mucus that lines the bronchial tubes and the pancreas, which favours pulmonary infections and digestive disorders. It leads to severe and progressive respiratory insufficiency, making daily life very demanding. Despite a life expectancy of 48 years for these patients today (it was 7 years in the 1960s), which continues to increase thanks to progress in research, the only alternative to prolong their lives a little more is lung transplantation, which occurs on average at the age of 28. In France, two million people are healthy carriers of the cystic fibrosis gene and every three days a child is born with the disease.
