AFM Téléthon is a French charity association which is working to help research against genetic illness. Every year, in December, AFM organize “Le Téléthon” as a national event, in every cities where volounteers prepare some events. This year, in le Mans, the Téléthon is moving to a village, in the famous race track of the 24 hours of Le Mans.
The objective : group all events in one unique place, open to everybody, to concentrate efforts and public. In the center of all these events (Handi-sports, Race trial, Music show…) you could find a strange shop :
Military men were fighting illness
Org’Airsoft, for its first participation in the Téléthon proposed an airsoft animation, to make people discover our passion, and associate researches made by AFM telethon
The concept :
- 3 identified illness (Progeria, Wiskott-Aldrich Syndrom and Leber Amauroser) for which genetic therapy are experimented were designed as target.
- Below these target, one specific point was linked to a collector.
The Game :
- Shoot at illness and fill the collector with these 6mm medicines.
- Of course, people were helped by « military doctor » to fulfill this mission
Despite of the lack of people, the event was a success and we collect 215 €, full given to AFM téléthon. We also introduce airsoft in a different way than fighting in the woods, to help change public vision on it.
Our sponsors (Cybergun, Molay, Survival Corps et Gunfire) allowed us to propose a quality event. The event partner, AD1-Airsoft, which offer bbs and protection glasses make possible that every people had fun and stayed safe. Finally, a big Thanks to every volounteers on the event, for their time and explanation for all people
