On a sunny Sunday morning, 36 Mougins School runners and 5 volunteers joined over 400 other local children to take part in the annual Mimosa Mini Runners event. At the end of the morning over 10,000€ had been raised for charity!
Mimosa is a volunteer-run charity based in the Riviera region that raises money for local children's cancer research and support groups. They host fun community events throughout the year such as a gala, bake sales, workshops and clothes swaps.
ICS Côte d’Azur, ISN Nice and Mougins British International School were proud sponsors of the 2023 Mimosa Fun Run, and all three schools have a history of working with the organisation or participating in fundraising events over the last ten years. In total over 90 Globeducate students participated in the event.
Ruth Jiggins, Mimosa Committee: The Mimosa Committee would like to thank Mougins School and their sister schools ICS Côte d'Azur and ISN Nice for their support of the Mimosa Fun Run 2023. We were thrilled with the success of the morning and hitting our fundraising target makes all the hard work worthwhile!
As members of Globeducate, the schools prepare each student to be a global citizen who can shape the world. We are committed to inspiring and empowering students to make a positive difference while showing empathy and compassion with people everywhere. Taking concepts and ideas beyond the classroom and applying them translates into real, character-building learning experiences for our students that can prove meaningful to their lives and the lives of others.
Many of our students, staff and their families have been affected by cancer, and sponsoring and participating in the Mimosa fun run is a meaningful way to join together with the local community to help raise funds for such an important cause. The crowdfunding page will remain open for another couple of weeks, do not hesitate to sponsor a Mimosa Mini Runner and raise money to help kids with cancer in the region.
All funds raised this year will be supporting essential research into the prevention and treatment of childhood cancers via La Ligue Contre Le Cancer Alpes-Maritimes, the Société Française de lutte contre les Cancers et des leucémies de l'Enfant et de l'adolescent (SFCE) and L'association Léo, active in the Var since 2018.
We look forward to participating in other upcoming Mimosa events in the future.
