Would you be interested in a Charity Run?

I have been considering organising a charity run in Zurich, but many people I have asked think that it wouldn't be well-received here. So I thought I would bring the question to a broader audience.

Specifically, I would like to organise a Terry Fox Run (www.terryfoxrun.org). Importantly money raised would stay in Zurich and go towards a cancer research project on "Spontaneous humoral immune responses in melanoma patients”. This work is being carried out at the Department of Oncology, University Hospital Zurich.

Thanks in advance. I appreciate hearing any thoughts or advice.

Cheers

Re: Would you be interested in a Charity Run?

At home this run is always in September, but international runs can be anytime that is convenient for the organisers. If I decide to organise it I would aim for September 2009 or April 2010. Location would be somewhere in Zurich.
I am still undecided because people I have discussed it with don't seem very enthusiastic.
