The Epinal-Jeuxey Health Walk will bring together several hundred participants on Sunday, September 4.

Walking helps to have good health, the Vosges Health Insurance reminds us of this during the Health Walk and invites you to meet this year in Jeuxey on Sunday 4 September. The opportunity for the general public to learn about health prevention and, more particularly for this edition,
about organ donation.

“30 minutes of brisk walking a day, without stopping, reduces the risk of cancer, Alzheimer’s and cardiovascular diseases by 40%. This is confirmed by epidemiological studies. Thus, to show loved ones that it is within their reach, or to reconnect with good habits while receiving health advice, two courses have been organized.

Walks of 6 and 12 km

Meeting point in the car park of the Carrefour Épinal – Jeuxey shopping center between 8:30 a.m. and 3:00 p.m. The 6 km route, marked in blue., is a family route accessible to strollers equipped with large wheels. A pretty path leads to the village of Jeuxey, from where you can discover a rural landscape.

The 12 km route, marked in redsuggests that, after the first control, you extend the route through an alley of centenary oaks to the village of Deyvillers and continue through the Vaudeville woods.

The end point of the two courses is at the Jeuxey town hall, where the Health Center will be installed this year. A tasting of seasonal products will reward walkers for their participation.

The activities of the Health Pole

Health, food and sports activities, walkers will be able to stock up on information and advice until 5:00 p.m., thanks to the many partners of the event.

For example, the Vosges Health Networks Association will provide advice on how to maintain weight by opting for a balanced diet. Health actors and patient associations will present screening operations and offer information on kidney diseases, cancer, diabetes, respiratory diseases and even Parkinson’s disease. The Epinal Blood Donors Association will come and sensitize the participants about blood donation.

This year, organ and tissue donation modalities will be highlighted. Donations that each year save many lives (see box on the side).

oral prevention

Good practices prevent the formation of cavities but also the development of diseases. Although the M’T dents device offers regular exams and 100% reimbursement to pregnant women and women ages 3-24, 65% of them needed dental care in 2018. To raise awareness among children ages 5-10, offer a treasure hunt for them. By answering questions at the posts in the Health Center, they will be able to obtain the secret code and gain access to a pleasant surprise.

Theme of the 2022 edition: organ and tissue donation

We told you about it last June, on the occasion of the National Organ and Tissue Donation Day, which allowed the CPAM des Vosges to launch its awareness campaign on the importance of giving options to those around you.

Every year 6,000 transplants are performed in France, 39 Vosgiens benefited last year. But the refusal rate to donate organs and tissues observed since January by the Transplant Coordination Center of the Epinal hospital center, reached 40% against 25% in 2021 and 30% in 2020.

We can all be givers, but also receivers. Saying yes or no depends on each one, but do we have all the information to decide? What is presumed consent? What principles is the bioethics law based on? What organs can be removed? Is there an age limit to be a donor? By participating in the health walk, you will have answers to all these questions and you will be able to talk about them around you.
