The Stemo of Béziers and Narbonne, as well as the shelter for unaccompanied minors of Nissan and the CRPF took part in a sports and solidarity day around the Canal du Midi.
The setting is almost ideal. The cause, laudable and topical. Thirteen young people and adults were on Wednesday June 1 in the morning, under the sun on the banks of the Canal du Midi, running, pedaling, paddling and even getting information, between Colombiers and Béziers. And among these few athletes, more or less seasoned, young people from the PJJ (Judicial Protection of Youth). But therefore, “value these young people, who are not used to it”.
Because, beyond the landscape that accompanied them for eight kilometers of run and bike, everyone got their T-shirts wet for the Handi’chiens association. “Since September 30, legal assistance dogs have been dressed to allow victims to evacuate their anxieties and to speak more easily.says Valérie Brion, head of the West unit of the territorial educational service in an open environment in Béziers. And this association does.” Each kilometer traveled therefore corresponds to an amount which is reversed to the association at the end of the day.
Canoeing and touch rugby
But before that, we had to sweat. And some were more enthusiastic than others. “Some people find it difficult to understand the principle of solidarity. You have to explain to them that they too benefit from it, so it’s normal to participate”explains Audrey Mari, participant and technical educator.
others, “are happy to find out because they are not from here”, continues, meanwhile, the supervisor of the home for unaccompanied minors, in Nissan. Be that as it may, it was still €1,200 that was made. And it was around 4:30 p.m., after a session of touch rugby and canoeing, that these thirteen participants were joined by partners and other young people, present with them during other actions to present this check to the association, place to make a demonstration with an assistance dog. All around a snack.
