Organizations with Fundraising Events
Pink Ribbon Charity Walk
The Pink Ribbon Charity Walk is an annual autumn event organized by 2C Communication in support of the Krebsliga Schweiz (Swiss Cancer League). All proceeds fund breast cancer research, prevention and patient care in Switzerland. The AWCZ and Zurich International Women's Association have often participated together as a group at the walk.
Sponsor a duck (or one for each of your family members!) and come to Zurich each August to watch the ducks race down the Limmat. This is a great outing for families with young children. Proceeds support Krebsliga Zurich.
