Ride for the Cause: team building on Lake Geneva for a good cause

To celebrate its tenth anniversary, Ride for the Cause will organise a variety of exciting activities between 30 August and 2 September 2018 at Pierrier Beach in Montreux.

Stand Up Paddling and motivational session for companies
If you are looking to grow your company’s corporate social responsibility or for an original team building activity, Ride for the Cause may be for you. On 31 August 2018, companies’ teams will be given the chance to demonstrate their Stand Up Paddle (SUP) skills in three styles on Lake Geneva: individually, on a 4-person board, and on an 8-person board. Instructors will be on site to help those new to the world of SUP. The day will round up with a conference delivered by one-of-a-kind adventurer Chris Bertish, a Big Wave Surfing Mavericks champion, Stand up Paddle Boarding Guinness World Record Holder and Ocean Pioneer. He recently became the first person ever to Stand Up Paddle across any ocean.

Inauguration of Shaka Statue – Sunday 2 Sept, 1:00pm
In order to pay tribute to the citizens’ initiatives and community involvement in support of Ride for the Cause over the past ten years, the association will also take the opportunity to leave a lasting mark at the shores of Lake Geneva: a statue representing the “shaka”, made of local driftwood. Surfers across the world frequently use the “shaka” or “hang loose”, meaning both hello and goodbye. It symbolises a state of mind of openness and friendship within a community.
