To celebrate World IBD Day, the French Association, AFA, organized more than 80 actions throughout France to raise awareness and support people with IBD.
Among the highlights, many monuments were lit in purple such as the Opera of Marseille, the Pont du Gard, the National Archeology Museum of Saint-Germain-en-Laye, the walls of Vannes and the Bridge of Love in Annecy.
Information stands were set up in hospitals or outdoors.
Marked under the sign of physical activity with the slogan "let's move faster than the disease!", this year we organised sporting events such as hiking, Zumba, capoeira and even pole dance.
We also got a huge support from the French National Olympic and Sports Committee.
