29 Sep, 2010
A team from BioAlliance Pharma SA (Euronext Paris –BIO) will participate in the Odyssea charity fun run on Sunday October 3rd, at Bois de Vincennes, Paris, to the benefit of fight against breast cancer.
BioAlliance Pharma builds up its growth on innovation dedicated to the treatment of cancer patients and supportive care. The company’s employees share this commitment and have decided to rally to the cause. A team representing BioAlliance Pharma will participate in this sport challenge and convivial event.
In France, almost 42 000 new cases of breast cancer are diagnosed every year. Although the annual death rate caused by this pathology has decreased thanks to earlier diagnosis and new drugs, much remains to be done. The funds raised during the Odyssea events will be donated to breast cancer support groups and cancer research charities. Information on the disease, its diagnosis and the different kinds of support available to patient and their families will be presented on charity booths at the event.
