The final amount donated largely exceeds the pledges recorded at the end of the broadcast. A remarkable result as the AFM-Telethon prepares to meet new challenges for 2013.


The final amount donated to Telethon 2012 attained 88,156,400 euros. This outstanding result exceeds by 7 million euros, the pledges made at the end of 30 hours of broadcast on France Televisions.

We owe this result to your engagement, your enthusiasm and your generosity. Volunteer or donor, you have made the Telethon a UNIQUE event and an incredible celebration throughout France.

Thanks to this AUDACIOUS FRANCE, researchers from the Telethon laboratories will continue to invent new therapies, essential to cure rare diseases and useful to medicine as a whole. In 2013, the AFM-Telethon can thus tackle new CHALLENGES: launch new trials and become the first patient association to produce gene therapy medicines through its Genethon laboratory.

Thanks to this UNITED France, Léa, Jeanne, Annie, Orane, Nolwen, Mickael…all patients and their families are full of energy and hope to resist in the face of illness and win new victories daily: participate in a trial, go to school, take exams, work…simply, Live!
