Thursday, May 16, from 5pm to 9pm, 1,150 runners attacked First Tower, France's tallest building with 954 steps. While some had the objective of beating Piotr Lobodzinski's stratospheric record in 4'42'' (still missed!), the majority came to the starting line with a completely different intention: to cross the symbolic threshold of one million euros raised since 2013! Challenge met with brio. Solidarity has reached new heights! THANK YOU.

THANK YOU also to those who defended the colours of their company but also shared the vision of sport promoted by PLAY International, an NGO that places sport as a source of solutions to meet our social challenges.
All the PLAY International teams sincerely thank all the participants and look forward to seeing you next year for an even more intense Vertigo; next September to celebrate its 20th anniversary or on the field, in Paris, Bujumbura, Pristina or elsewhere!

New collection record!!!
Vertigo is not just about times, it's above all a commitment to solidarity and at this little game, they culminate at more than 231 meters....
This year, Jennifer Sauvage, an educator in Mayotte who uses PLAY's porgrams, enters 3rd place (1185 euros!) in a ranking trusty by 2 collectors: the indéboulonables Gypsies. The historic Stéphane LEPEU is in second place with 2508 euros of collection, just behind Guillaume RENDU who, with 3335 euros on the clock, takes the 1st place and at the same time, the most beautiful collection in the history of Vertigo !
