(left to right: our No Difference coach Alex with team member Raffaele, Nathalie, Amelie, joining the training just-for-fun-but-not-for-the-big-run Charlene followed by the man who had the brilliant idea in the first place, Stephan. At the back we have supporting no difference coach Alain and at the front there is a bit of Rashida)
We are a small group of 5 non-super-sporty (but trying to be) employees from MSC HQ in Geneva who that have got together to support a Swiss organisation called NO DIFFERENCE.
a) helps children and young adults with mental/physical disabilities to engage in martial arts
b) focuses on an group of physically challenged children and young adults to train them to elite level
c) help integrate asylum-seeking children into Swiss schools through arts & sports
We are supporting the organisation by signing up to the Spartan Sprint race: a 5km + (the plus being additional surprise kms added on the day) "run" (as in, jog/fast walk or crawl), with an elevation of +1000m & including +20 obstacles, starting alongside one of the No difference elite athletes, a paraplegic, Soraya.
Privately, we have already contributed 300 chf each to the organisation and are looking to raise 4000 chf more before we run on the 6th July in Morzine, France.
Any help would be much appreciated!
