Vsummits, a local virtual event management team had the opportunity to make a true impact on our community during a tough time for all. On Saturday, November 7th Vsummits hosted a virtual event known as “Worth the Fight ATRT Rally”. This rally gathered individuals to fight against childhood cancer! “Dr. Kosj and Jaymi Yamoah started Hope4ATRT after walking through their own cancer journey as a family. In 2015 their almost three-year-old son, Zion, was diagnosed with a rare and aggressive form of brain cancer known as Atypical Teratoid Rhabdoid Tumor (ATRT). Even as an oncologist himself, Dr. Yamoah was dismayed to learn how limited resources were for this rare disease. After the devastating loss of Zion, his parents were compelled to help fund innovative research, and be a resource for families in the fight against ATRT.” Vsummits created a platform that was like none other, so the participants felt fully engaged throughout the entire event. There was an opening reception scavenger hunt and silent auction that occurred with full engagement of the guests. The event also had amazing guest speakers, Dr. Santhosh Upadhyaya (St. Jude) and Dr. Annie Huang (Sick Kids, Toronto) that provided deep information about childhood cancer and the research that continues to be completed. This shows that while times are different, we should continue to strive for a stronger community together.
The experienced team at Vsummits was a sponsor of this event and can host your virtual event dreams as well! The team at Vsummits will assist with creating a customized layout specific to your event that will allow the attendees to feel as if they are there in person! They also provide full tech support, marketing strategies and will help promote your event as well. While the world has shifted from close in person gatherings to distanced gatherings, we should not lose sight of true interactions. It is time to provide an experience that is more cost effective, more engaging, safe, convenient, and focuses more out the purpose of the event. Virtual events are the future and Vsummits is here to be on your team!
