On 24 March 2022, we organized an Open House event at the ESCA CS centre to showcase our work and connect with the community we serve. The centre was buzzing with visitors discovering our various services such as counselling, yoga, art therapy, Walk’nTalk and the various support groups. Our volunteers had once again outdone themselves providing tables full of delicious treats for everyone to enjoy.
We hosted some special guests, including the Geneva State Councillor in charge of Health, Mauro Poggia the mayor of Grand-Saconnex, Michel Pommato as well as the CEO of Union for International Cancer Control (UICC), Dr Cary Adams. We were also extremely happy to welcome various NGOs, companies as well as individuals interested in our services.
This year our annual March for CancerSupport joined forces with Steps for CancerSupport. So, immediately after the wonderful speeches we kicked off the fitness and fundraising challenge by beginning our annual march down to Lac Leman to raise awareness for cancer and see the Jet d’Eau light up in ESCA CS colours.
