Tiago runs “le tour de France”

Back to the list

After studying at AFLyon for 7 months, Tiago Bandeira de Lima (Portugal)  embarked on a true adventure : he decided to run “le tour de France” in 100 days in favor of the non-profit organization Restos du Cœur. To help him achieve this challenge, the Alliances Françaises which were on his journey (Marseille, Montpellier, Toulouse, Bordeaux, Rouen and Strasbourg) took turns to welcome him and offer accommodation. A good example of solidarity and collaboration between Alliances Françaises in France but, above all, an extraordinary story where Tiago finally traveled 3578.5 Km in 83 days and raised more than €2000, the equivalent to 2000 additional meals distributed by Restos du Cœur.
