Sunday 4 September marked the 9th outing of the Pink Ribbon Charity Walk in Zürich with, for the first time, Eider as the sponsor of the event's pink shirts, designed especially for the occasion. With more than 5000 participants, the Charity Walk is one of the most important events of Pink Ribbon Switzerland.
When the starting pistol went off at 2:30 PM on Sunday, 5000 participants set off on a 4 km circuit through the Letzigrund Stadium and the surrounding districts, thereby making a clear statement that was not purely visual: a large proportion of the entry fees being channelled into future projects of Pink Ribbon Switzerland. Alongside the walk there was a busy supporting programme for participants and visitors. From 12:30 you could get into the mood for the walk with Zumba-Training, Zumba® Fitness Warm Up or Hip Hop–Training for children and teenagers with Curtis, the choreographer of DJ Bobo. Free drinks and snacks were available from the many food stands, and DJ Odile provided the musical entertainment. All participants also received a Give-Away-Bag with 17 generous gifts, all on top of the attractive Eider shirt!
