Revised format – Sponsoring Fundraiser for 2020!

Celebration on Saturday 19th September on Zoom

Help Nicolas Robinson School keep educating the students

during the Covid-19 Pandemic

Take part in our sponsored run/walk This year it will be a virtual event! 

The advantage is that you do not need to be in Switzerland to participate but you can help us from anywhere in the world.

We are asking you to get sponsorship between now and 19th September, in any activity of your choice, and raise funds for Rainbows4children.

Participants will participate in the event “virtually” ie we will participate in our own “pods” This will require participants to organise their own individual walks or other fundraising ideas, on the actual day of our meeting (19th September) or during their holidays, before the event, and this will enable you to raise sponsorship for the activity you decide to do. Participants may choose to do an extra-special walk or add something creative to make it fun or a challenge and be sponsored for this.


Examples: –

Run/walk a marathon!

Wear rainbow colours

Three-legged walk

Walk backwards

Cycle or swim

Climb a mountain!


Participants may also choose to walk as families or with groups of friends, observing Covid-19 safety rules and could make a short film (remembering to use the mobile phone in horizontal format) of their participation. This film can then be sent to Rainbows4children and we would edit it together for the evening “Virtual event”. Please send your short clips to Kathryn at either:   or by the end of Sunday 13th September, latest, to allow Max time for editing.


As for “normal” events, those planning to walk or run should look for sponsorship from family, friends, and work colleagues which helps widen the network of support.

Participants would then be asked to email their estimate of the amount raised to Rainbows4children prior to the “Virtual Event” and this will help to give us an estimate of the total amount raised.

Walking the dogs!
