These two factors have been the leading cause of preventable mortality since 2012. This is a real public health problem, the dramatic consequences of which are still rarely known to the general public.

In the face of these anxious observations, the club sought to make a firm commitment, an equally convincing conviction was born: no matter the age, gender or physical condition, an active adoption and reducing the time spent on sitting activities are essential levers for improvement. The state of one’s health

The program “Move!” Revolves around three main axes: Raise public awareness about the challenges of living sedentary lifestyles and physical inactivity; Training of field actors; Support for sports practice in Brittany.
