The 31st edition of the annual Telethon Monaco, to support the fight against rare, genetic diseases, kicked off yesterday, with the official opening of Telethon Village in the Port (South darse) followed by a Ferrari and Harley Davidson parade.

Entertainment includes ladder climbing with the Monaco Fire Department, stalls selling clothes and toys, Ferrari and Harley Davidson tours, laser rifle shooting, Scrabble tournaments and workshops. Temporary tattoos and hair braiding will also be available, and refreshments will be provided by the association Goutte d’Eau.

On Saturday, the agenda offers Handi Country at 2:30 pm, followed by Zumba (3:30 pm) and a lantern parada at 5:30 pm. At the Théâtre des Variétés, there’s a Studio de Monaco show (3 pm). A white truffle dinner, (€25/person) will be served at 8:30 pm.

On Sunday, there’s an Athena Music concert (2 pm), Zumba (4:30 pm) and a tombala (6 pm).

The Monaco Telethon Organisation shares a common goal with AFM-Telethon, the French Muscular Dystrophy Association, which not only supports rare disease research but also helps to support patients and families during each stage of the disease, from diagnosis to housing and care, and from education to employment.
