DigestScience, foundation dedicated to research on digestive pathologies and nutrition, is looking for enterprises and generous people to help it keep following its efforts and to overcome these diseases. Its idea: 10€ given for each ace performed during Play In Challenger !

DigestScience is so far the only public utility foundation in France (edict on 21 July 2008) fully dedicated to research on digestive pathologies and nutrition (Crohn disease, ulcerative colitis, celiac disease, irritable bowel syndrome).

This foundation was created by Pierre Desreumaux, Professor of gastroenterology in University and in CHU of Lille, Director of LIRIC Inserm 995 Reaserch center.

True accelerator/agitator, DigestScience is involved in several subjects: research, care, training, education, information for health professionals, scientists and sick people.

Over the last 10 years, DigestScience invested 3 million euros in reasearch on digestive diseases and nutrition (aluminium impact, cellular therapy, self-hypnose and surgery, intestinal microbiota, development of bacteriophages…).

Its goal for the next coming years is to finance research to find the environmental origins of Crohn disease, and to finance the opening of the first paramedical house for digestive diseases.

To do so, Play In Challenger, managed by Tennis Club Lillois Lille Métropole, is willing to be next to DigestSience and to take profit of its event to promote this great cause supported by this foundation. Thus, the tournament wants to make sponsorise each ace performed during the competition (10€ per ace), and is therefore looking for enterprises and generous donors.

If you are sensitive to this action and willing to also associate your image and brand to the one of DigestScience, as to benefit from a strong visibility during a major sport event of the Métropole, you can call on 03 20 96 81 26 or contact the foundation at : secretariat@digestscience.com.

For French residents, your donation to DigestScience will provide you with a 66% tax credit on its amount, limited to 20% of your taxable income. Above, you can report the exceeded amount on the 5 following years.
