Created in 2006, Sant "e "scalade is a health promotion action led by the eponymous non-profit association, which is completely independent from the Association de la Course de l'Escalade, which is in charge of organizing the Course de l'Escalade. Its committee is composed of about ten volunteer members. Among them, specialists in health and education contribute their experience and skills to the association throughout the year.
The association Sant "e "scalade aims first of all to promote physical activity and the basics of a healthy and balanced diet among children aged 6 to 15 in the Canton of Geneva. This program is based on the involvement of physical education teachers, parent-teacher associations and specialists in nutrition and sports physiology in order to systematically guarantee quality supervision. This quality supervision is an essential key to the success of the health and safety program.
Fully in line with the objectives of Sant "e "scalade, i.e. "to promote health through physical activity" and created in 1999, during the international year dedicated to seniors by the UN, the training sessions for people over 60 years old take place every Thursday afternoon at the Bout-du-Monde Stadium, supervised by specialists from the Athlética center.
