GOLD in September

“Gold in September”: International Childhood Cancer Awareness Month.

Childhood Cancer Awareness Month (CCAM) is recognized every September by childhood cancer organizations around the world.

With a goal to increase awareness and raise funds for those affected by childhood cancer, we encourage everyone to go gold during the month of September for childhood cancer.

Our main campaign in September is the sale of our GOLD ribbons in many shops across the country. Every year, more than 20’000 ribbons are made by our volunteers and about 400 partner shops offer them to their customers for the symbolic price of CHF 1.00.


Together, let’s turn September GOLD for children with cancer!
