Following some health challenges this autumn, I decided to turn the difficulty of this run into the positive. Dressing up and Running as Clown Father Xmas for a few kilometers is my simple tribute to those in real distress. Funds raised will support Clowns Without Borders Switzerland (www.clownswithoutborders.ch) who does great work. It is an association gathering performing artists, clowns, musicians, dancers, play workers, play specialists, social workers and intellectuals who are concerned by the world in which we live in. Inspired by the work of CWB International (www.cwb-international.org ) , their main objective is to encounter populations, especially children in distress, living in areas of crisis across the world. Throughout their interventions, they create space to heal from traumatic experiences caused by war or displacement and bring laughter as a form of humanitarian aid to people living in the gravest, most disaster-stricken and war-torn zones of the world.
To support them I suggest to do contribute financially, coming over to cheer up or simply promoting this initiative. To donate CHF 3 (or more) for every km I manage to run dressed up as Clown Father Xmas, during the 'Course de La Escalade' (7.3km) in Geneva, Saturday 2nd of December 2017...will be great!
The donations are managed by GoGetFunding. Easy and 100% secure.
