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 in Morzine, France & Verbier, Switzerland: 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 5000 chf for the charity.
Any help would be much appreciated!

We did our first Spartan Sprint & survived to tell the tale!Update posted by RASHIDA RAHIM at 08:07 am
The weather on Sunday did not get off to a good start. It was cloudy & then deteriorated into grail and rain but, luckily for us, the sun came out and allowed us to enjoy the event to the max! The team was on the starting block ready to run. . . . .
Prolonging the fund-raising till September! Find out why...Update posted by RASHIDA RAHIM at 12:48 pm
The team have decided to go crazy and do the new spartan in Verbier on 14th September (first one in Switzerland) having not yet attempted the first one in Morzine on July 6th! It's pure foolishness for a very good cause - so help us if you can!
