The Pink Challenge at the Lausanne Marathon – 2016

Lausanne Marathon is coming at the end of the month, and I am sure many of you runners already know and most likely will run there. However my post here is more directed to those who may want to join the fun even without running, and for a really good cause: To raise awareness of breast cancer!pinkWe know that October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month and within the Lausanne Marathon’s many shorter races, there is the “Pink Challenge”, calling all who can walk for 15 minutes. Adult, teens, kids and babies, even in strollers, are welcome. All who participate officially (fee chf20) will receive perks such as official t-shirt, finisher medal, and small souvenir. The date is Saturday 29 October 2016, start at 2.30pm in Parc de Milan.

Daughter and I will be there (Son will run the 600m earlier that afternoon and husband will run 10K the next day so that they won’t join the girls as it would be too expensive for us). If you are interested to march there too, don’t forget to register asap, as the early registration closes on 10 October 2016. Prices go up (chf30) for registration between 10th and 17th (the closing date).

Hope to see you marching there!

Glaucoma Day and Glaucoma Awareness Week

Glaucoma is an eye disorder that touches mostly the aging population. People from 40-year of age are advised to have a screening every 3 years, and from 60-year of age once a year.

This year’s Glaucoma Day in Lausanne will take place tomorrow, Thursday, March 10, 2011. The events will be at the Jules-Gonin Eye Hospital (Avenue de France 15, 1004 Lausanne) from 8:30am-4:30pm and as well as on a special bus at St François from 8:30am-2pm

On this day, there will be free examination at the Polyclinic of the eye hospital – and if necessary at the Glaucoma Unit. There will also be lectures and courses at the Auditorium and other areas of the eye hospital.

In addition, between 14-18 of March 2011, many ophthalmologists participate on the screening of glaucoma. For more info, please check www.swissglaucome.ch
