Our Story

On March 2, 2013, Yan de Maroussem, Mauritian athlete, adept at trail and endurance races, was the leader of a tour of the island. Through 5 sports disciplines, kayaking, cycling, running, rollerblading and skiing offshore, he helped to raise public awareness of a cause dear to GML. Over the years, thanks to the partnership with the Joseph Lagesse Foundation, GML On The Move and later, IBL On The Move, have tirelessly aimed to encourage the practice of sport for good health, but especially to focus on the importance of self-giving.

Thus, in 2013, GML On The Move enabled a wonderful mobilization to give a home to a family in need. Today this family is well, they moved into their new home in 2014. The 2014 edition aimed to support 4 diabetic children with the association T1 Diam’s but also to sensitize the public on the importance of eating well and to practice a regular physical activity. In 2015 and 2016 respectively, the Foundation followed Amour Sans Frontière for the renovation of their school as well as the purchase of medical equipment for their students with a physical and / or mental disability and also the Uni-Kidz association in its project for inclusive education for otherwise capable children. In 2017, IBL On the Move helped support Breast Cancer Care through the purchase of specific equipment and accessories for their cancer patients. Three physicians were also identified to perform multiple screening tests over a 12-month period and two breast reconstructions.
