Providing smiles to children with a rare disease through motorsport is the goal of Rally for Smile. For its fourth edition, the initiator of the event, Pierre-André Terrettaz and his committee have chosen to support ELA Switzerland and provide families with a unique and extraordinary day.
On August 25, 2018, at Casernes de Sion (canton of Valais), the children of ELA as well as their brothers and sisters had the joy of taking their seats alongside renowned pilots for a lap of the circuit. About forty vehicles were available to the many car enthusiasts who came to discover the sensations of being a co-driver, as was the case for Arnaud, a young man affected by leukodystrophy. The public was also able to enjoy the various activities offered during this solidarity event. It was with stars in their eyes that young and old alike had a wonderful day that ended with a big release of balloons.
Thanks to the tremendous mobilisation and the presence of more than a thousand spectators, CHF 30,000were raised in favor of the ELA Swiss Association.
ELA Switzerland and all the families warmly thank the organising committee, the drivers, the sponsors, the partners and the volunteers of Rally for Smile for their admirable commitment for the fight against leukodystrophies.
