FUNdraising Ideas

Fundraising can be a entertaining way of supporting ESCA CancerSupport as well as promoting cancer awareness.

Create a Fundraiser

Bring your talents to task! There are many ways to have fun while promoting cancer awareness and raising funds for ESCA CancerSupport, like a silent action or a sweepstakes where participants can try guessing the number of beads in a jar or the weight of a cake. Also, consider asking your employer or association to match your funds, doubling your effort!

Testimonial

  • “My family and I have profited from the services of ESCA for many years, during the time my wife was fighting cancer and when she lost the battle. ESCA was and still is a great help and support. Not judgmental, providing support in most difficult times....ESCA is so important specifically in a place like Geneva... If it didn't exist one would need to invent it.”

  • “ESCA and its wonderful volunteers and support activities - mindfulness course, counseling sessions and yoga classes - really made a difference during my treatment period; I met lovely peers and received a lot of support that also in many ways changed my life.”

  • “As I told the Oncologist, the only way I got through the cancer was meditation and the MBCT Cancer Support Group at ESCA.”

  • “During the treatments, Sari’s gentle yoga classes were one of the highlights of the week that I always looked so much forward to; and I always felt so much better afterwards thanks to the exercises and meeting peers.”
