Zoé4life is hosting an awareness and fundraising event in the beautiful lake-side town of Rolle on October 1st 2016! This team-building and family-friendly event will mark the closing of September, International Childhood Cancer Awareness Month, during which many awareness activities will take place, including the illumination in gold of Geneva’s Jet d’eau for the 4th year in a row. Gold is the symbolic colour representing solidarity for children with cancer – the number one cause of death by disease in children.
Day4life will be a day of solidarity, which will encourage the people of Suisse Romande to show their support for this cause, while also enjoying a fun day of various activities by the lake. It will also be an excellent opportunity to take part in our team-building event for any group or organization wishing to strengthen its interpersonal bonds while engaging in a challenging afternoon, all in the name of a great cause. As Zoé4life’s motto states: Together, we can make a difference!
Our celebrity ambassador:
We are pleased to announce that Jean-Marc Richard, well know television and radio show host, will give us the honour of being our ambassador for the event. Jean-Marc Richard is already quite active as Switzerland’s ambassador for the Rights of the Child since 2006. He chose to support Zoé4life and this event for the following reasons:
“I am deeply moved by the fact that Zoé4life was able to turn a tragedy into an active, extremely well-known organization that benefits so many.”
The event will have two main parts:
Zoé loved to laugh, but even more than that, she loved to have fun, see people, play, and live every moment of her life to the fullest. Zoé’s Village, which will be set up in the courtyard in front of the historic Rolle Castle, will represent that joy for life, a place where people can come to meet-up, share a meal or a drink, spend time together, or take part in one of the many activities for all ages.
Some of the many events and activities:
- Evening concert by the popular local group « Les Pseudos »
- Capoeira initiation and demonstration
- Zumba for kids & Zumba for adults
- Cupcake workshop for kids (The Melazic Kingdom)
- Information booths about Zoé4life and other partners
- Food and beverage booths
A team-building event like no other – fun, challenging, lightly competitive but accessible to anyone – this is the event to sign up for to show that together, we can make a difference.
Based on the principles of an orienteering race, this event will see two dozen teams of four to eight people each competing, using maps and clues, to find their way to special posts throughout Rolle as they race to complete the challenge. They will encounter various obstacles, tests and trials and will ultimately make their way back to Zoé’s Village for one last challenge.
Sign up for the Challenge and raise awareness and funds for childhood cancer! Each team will have their own page on the Zoe4life website, where they can be sponsored and receive messages. More info, or sign up by writing us at: firstname.lastname@example.org
