Sponsored by Prof. Christian Cabrol, a pioneer in organ transplantation who performed the 1st heart transplant in Europe in 1968, the Course du Cœur aims to change people’s outlook on these issues, spreading the word in over 200 municipalities and through the media coverage of the event.

This year, the Dassault Group team has the support of two prestigious sponsors: Karine Celhay, a bone marrow and lung transplant recipient and participant in the World Transplant Games, and Dorine Bourneton, the only disabled female aerobatic pilot.
