Charity events on the French Riviera

Saturday 14 October 2017    Cogs 4 Cancer : End of Ride/Season Party

The popular Cogs 4 Cancer cycle covers 1400 km from London to Antibes with 30 cyclists raising more than €242000 this year in the fight against cancer.  While that is a phenomenal amount, let’s get behind the team and keep the funds growing by attending the fundraiser party that will be hosted in the evening at The View in the Palais des Congrès in Juan les Pins.

Entertainment includes a DJ, Deceptionist and Contortionist with snacks and nibbles on offer; the event starts at 8pm and goes till late.  100% of ticket sales goes to charity and 30% of drinks sales goes to charity.   There are also the Cogs 4 Cancer wristbands/bracelets on sale across the French Riviera, or you can opt to visit the website to donate www.cogs4cancer.org

Note:  The cyclists will be arriving at Antibes the previous day on Friday 13 October 2017 following a tribute ride from Port Gallice around the Cap d’Antibes and arriving at the IYCA at Port Vauban in Antibes approx. 4.45pm with the arrival party from 5pm, sponsored by Gourmet Deliveries.  Find out more about the Cogs 4 Cancer 2017 arrival time and info here:  http://cogs4cancer.org/2017-tribute-ride

About Pink Ribbon Monaco

Pink Ribbon Monaco is a 100% non-profit organisation that aims to raise awareness on methods of early breast cancer detection and prevention through various campaigns and events.  Pink Ribbon Monaco works closely with medical professionals to provide assistance and support when and where it is needed.

With the backing and guidance of the Centre Hospitalier Princesse Grace, they target the areas in need of assistance and their breast cancer awareness campaigns aims to educate the general public on prevention and early detection, support patients and celebrate life to the fullest while promoting well-being and a healthy lifestyle!

The Pink Ribbon Monaco walk

The walk circuit is 5 kilometres with the start on the esplanade of Port Hercule in central Monaco – look for the tent beside the podium truck.   The start line is easy to find and only 10 minutes from the Monaco-Monte Carlo train station and car parking is an easy distance at Place des Armes or the port.

Registrations will be accepted right up to the event start so you can either register online at http://www.pinkribbon.mc, or at the Running Expo at the Stade Louis II on Friday or Saturday from 1pm-7pm (the actual walk is Sunday though).  You can find the Pink Ribbon team at Stade Louis II at the rear entrance.

The entry fee of €30 includes a pink t-shirt as well as a bib to write a message of support to someone who has inspired you for this walk.

Each year the event is attended by walkers showing support for their grandmother, mother, sister, wife, friend – it is a worthy cause that touches many lives so skip your Sunday brunch and come along!

Pink Ribbon Monaco Walk 2017 circuit

Lots of families take part; all children are welcome and kids under 13 years are free; the walk is easy and fun.  Everyone is encouraged to dress in pink – feather boas, crazy hats, pink sunglasses, the crazier the better I say!

What your €30 entry fee goes towards

This year, Pink Ribbon Monaco is raising funds to help a medical trial held between the Centre Lacasagne in Nice and the Centre Hospitalier Princesse Grace in Monaco. They will be studying two particularly tough strains of breast cancer, HER2+ and TNBC.

Throughout the year, your 30€ contribution helps Pink Ribbon Monaco:

  • Work and assist the Centre de Dépistage du CHPG (Hopital Princesse Grace Screening Centre) led by Dr Daniel Rouison, part of the Ministry of Health and Social affairs

  • Organise informative Q&A conferences in Monaco

  • Organise further awareness campaigns and events

  • Illuminate various Monegasque landmarks in October, during international breast cancer awareness month.

 

 During the Walk, your 30€ also helps:

  • Contribute to the Federation Monegasque d’Athlètisme and Monaco Run, our hosts for the event. The FMA donates a great deal of material to us, but we still contribute to insurance and other costs attached to the Walk.

  • Our fabric bags, as this year we replaced the plastic bags for reusable, ecological fabric

  • Printing posters and displaying them across Monaco and neighbouring towns.

If you can’t attend the charity walk, you can simply give a donation of any amount.

When:  Sunday 12 March 2017 at 10.00am, Port Hercule in Monaco

  • The umbrella is a gift to participants, as it is our 5th anniversary and we had very bad weather last year and did not want to purchase plastic, one use ponchos.

You can also volunteer to help with the event, or simply give a donation of any amount.  Don’t worry if you can’t make this weekend’s event because there are likely to be other fundraisers later in the year – previous events have included ‘Poker nights’ and ‘Paddle for Pink’ stand up paddle boarding at Cap d’Ail.
