Our charity event Fitness-against-Children’s Cancer of last Saturday was a great success. Together our team members and their Corona core families vaporized almost 100’000 calories. The incentive of 10 Swiss centimes for each calorie caused heavy jogging, hiking, and biking in Singapore as well as in Switzerland. As a result, Finalix will donate CHF 4’500 each to the Swiss Association to Support Children with Cancer (www.kinderkrebs.ch) and the Child Cancer Research Foundation Switzerland. Another CHF will go to the Children’s Cancer Foundation in Singapur (www.ccf.org.sg). We kicked off Fitness-against-Children’s Cancer because the traditional sponsoring event Gemeinsam-gegen-Kinderkrebs could not take place this year due to Corona. We would like to thank all participants for their solidarity with families challenged with children’s cancer and their efforts in favor of child cancer research. You are a great team!
