Since 2005, the DECATHLON Foundation supports teammates who want to get involved locally in social initiatives that combine sport, health, education and employability.
The DECATHLON foundation provides funds for social initiatives through sustainable investments dedicated to sports pitches, fitting out indoor sports facilities, sports equipment or even training for sports jobs.
The project is coordinated day-to-day by the Decathlonians themselves who co-wrote the project, taking part in the events. The Foundation is, therefore, the convergence of human, sports and solidarity values.
