September is the month of international awareness of child cancer. In the French speaking part of Switzerland, the association Zoé4life is leading this incredible movement of solidarity, which aims to provide financial support to families with a chilld suffering from cancer, to improve the day to day life of children undergoing treatment as well as boost research in this field.

Around fifty local businesses in Nendaz (restaurants and bars, chemists, hairdressers, the optician, the butcher, rental agencies, sports and clothing shops, the fitness centre, the ski lift company, Nendaz Tourisme, etc.) have all agreed to answer ths call. They are proposing these litle ribbons for 1 franc throughout the month of September. The totality of the money raised is being donated to Zoé4life.
