Children are our future. Children keep us moving. Through their eyes, we see a world which is more colourful, alive and positive. That’s the way it should be, that’s how we want it to be.
But the truth of the matter is that life is not good for many children, even in prosperous Switzerland. The reasons for this are manifold: financial hardship, broken homes, social problems or health issues cause daily suffering for many children, even in our country.
The run4kids event brings together numerous well-known companies and around 1000 of their employees and their families with the aim of helping children in Switzerland continue to live healthy lives or achieve a healthy lifestyle. The ultimate purpose of this event is to help children enjoy a carefree childhood and allow those facing a difficult fate to experience moments that will help them forget about their suffering.

RUN RAISES OVER 110,000 SWISS FRANCS FOR THE WELL-BEING OF CHILDREN IN SWITZERLAND
Around 600 employees from Zurich-based companies were joined by numerous individual runners as they stood on the starting line for this event in Zürichhorn on 25 October 2015. The runners at the 15th annual “run4kids” event completed an impressive total of 7673 laps of the course over the space of two hours on the day. Many of them were also reminded of their worthwhile efforts the next day thanks to their arching muscles! The proceeds of CHF 110,510.80 from the run will go to Kinderspitex plus and fit4future, two organisations which have been campaigning for well-being and healthy living among children in Switzerland for a number of years now.
