"Synapse 17" was created in December 2009 by the Rotary clubs of Marennes-Oléron and Rochefort and by the Inner Wheel of Rochefort. They have organized the annual "World Championship of Joëlette" to benefit the handicapped since 2007.

With « To serve » as its motto, "Synapse 17" is founded on tolerance and loyalty, and is involved in activities benefitting the disabled.

« World Championship of Joëlette »

will be held on a NEW COURSE of ROCHEFORT, between La Rochelle and Royan, on Saturday, May 7th, 2016.

SYNAPSE 17 will mobilize its entire team of volunteers again this year to sign up more runners, to advertise, and to "internationalize" the race more than ever.

A joëlette allows five runners to race with a handicapped person between them. Together, the runners take on a challenging, all-terrain course filled with obstacles!

The participants must role, run, climb, scramble down paths that are chaotic, yet adapted for the joëlettes! The teams arrive at the finish line amidst tumultuous applause! The race is difficult, but the victory is shared by everyone. It is an unforgettable day that will be engraved forever in all of us, but especially in the memories of the person carried by the runners, who was thus able to participate in the entire race!
