This year, JOST, in collaboration with the Belgian Olympic and Inter-federal Committee via the group "Toujours avancer", wanted to support an important cause by composing teams of walkers/trailers to walk the marked paths of Spa by the association Think Pink.

Think Pink is an association that organizes various events throughout the year to raise funds to support scientific research against breast cancer.
The objective is global, it intervenes as much for the screening of breast cancer, treatments and care after breast cancer as for the support of people affected by the disease and their families. The fight is also on information, awareness and defence of the rights of the patient.
Let's not forget that breast cancer also affects men. We are all concerned.
Whether by bike, on foot, in Belgium, France, Germany, at the sea, in the mountains or in the city...this very active association offers all possible formulas so that each person can contribute in his or her own way according to his or her desires and possibilities.
It has been proven that daily physical exercise is very important and reduces the chances of development or relapse of breast cancer, promotes recovery during and after treatment.
In addition to sports activities, THINK PINK organizes round tables with researchers, medical specialists, nurses, the government, the insurance industry, patient organizations and the pharmaceutical industry. This enables the priority points to be put forward for work.
On Saturday 18 June, the event "THE LONGEST DAY WALK" took place in SPA, starting from the Warfaaz domain. There were 10, 27 and 50kms courses. Each circuit was generously equipped with refreshment points where everyone could refresh themselves and regain their strength by eating the various snacks available to the participants.
Under the more than 30 degrees that our thermometers showed, no less than 16 employees of the Kangaroo family answered the call of solidarity and took up the challenge with their hearts.
