Mets tes baskets et bats la maladie

This week has been the week of ‘put on your trainers and beat the illness’ throughout national schools in France. Supported by the minister for education, a week of educating the young about leukodystrophy and fundraising for ELA has been carried out in 850 schools, with 250,000 students taking part. The week started off with children completing a dictation, written by a French novelist, covering the daily battle of leukodystrophy. Joey was welcomed at Ecole Notre Dame in St Martin D’Uriage and he ran with the children (in his pushchair powered by his daddy). He was presented with dozens of drawings wishing him well. We were very moved by the spirit and enthusiasm of the teachers, parents and children.
