Thank you to everyone: donors, volunteers mobilized throughout France and abroad, families, partners, personalities! Thanks to your mobilization on December 2 and 3, the Telethon 2022 raised 90,839,067 euros! This tremendous result - the best since 2016 - shows how much the French people support the families’ fight against rare diseases.
"On December 2 and 3, after two years of major health crisis, we found the Telethon as we like it, full of joy, celebration and solidarity with thousands of events throughout France. (...) If today innovative medicines save the lives of doomed children and give them back their strength, it is thanks to you. Tomorrow, other children, teenagers and adults will benefit from treatments, thanks to you. I would like to thank all the donors, volunteers, partners, artists, TV hosts and teams of France Télévisions, and our sponsor, Kev Adams, for this exceptional edition! We’ll continue to fight, more determined than ever because for many families without treatment, there is no plan B! See you on December 8 and 9 for the 2023 Telethon", says Laurence Tiennot-Herment, President of AFM-Telethon.
Thanks to the youngest patron of the Telethon!
Kev Adams, patron of the Telethon 2022, also wanted to send a message to all those who have joined forces for this great festival of solidarity for the fight against rare diseases:
"I had an extraordinary time during these 30 hours. I was impressed by the energy of the families who fight to live each moment stronger despite the disease, by the energy of the researchers determined to save lives, and by the energy of the volunteers who organized "crazy" activities. Your donations change the lives of families! I am very proud to have taken on this role of patron, very proud of the results we have achieved together. Thank you for this adventure and we won't give up because many families are still waiting for treatment!" Kev Adams, patron of the Telethon 2022.
The 2023 Telethon will take place on December 8 and 9
Join now the thousands of volunteers who are preparing this new edition. As you have seen this year, the first victories against formerly incurable diseases are here. This is an immense hope for the many other patients who are still waiting for treatment. For them, we’ll continue to fight. On December 8 and 9, for the Telethon 2023, we are counting on you to give up nothing!
