Trott’n’Roll is back this weekend

The Flavien Foundation’s annual Trott’n’Roll charity event to benefit the fight against paedeatric cancers and rare diseases is back this year after being forced to cancel in 2020 due to the pandemic.

The Flavien Foundation, a charitable organisation dedicated to fighting childhood cancers and other rare maladies, is putting on its much-loved yearly Trott and Roll event on 18th September for its 11th edition.

Since 2014, the event has been a pivotal fundraiser for the charity, and a fun day out for kids as well. Everyone involved in the event are all asked to dress in orange, whilst the children take to their scooters, skates and bikes to follow a fun circuit.

The day also has a meet and greet by Ironman and Spiderman for the kids, clowns and balloons, bouncy castles, interactive Star Wars and Blitz stands, street artists and much more. Additionally, there will be a raffle to win over 30 prizes, including the grand prize of a trip for two to Dubai to visit the universal expo and a cheque presented to the Scientific Centre of Monaco for cancer research for €100,000.

€643,000 has been donated since the inception of the charity, which came about after the tragic death of 8-year-old Flavien Maccario from brain cancer.

“We can all do something for sick children who fight against scourges which to this day do not even benefit from any effective treatment,” say the organisers. “There is no vaccine against cancers, just successful research that very often works and so much the better. So, let’s make sure to increase the chances of healing more and healing better.”

Trott ‘n’ Roll will take place at Les Jardins d’Apolline and Allée Sauvaigo, from 9am to 6pm.
