The “Berufliche Schulen Achern” vocational schools, which function as a competency center for health education and training in the Ortenau district, are currently collecting donations for the Freiburg Förderverein krebskranker Kinder e.V. children’s cancer society. And the team at Koehler is pleased to announce that the company is supporting the corresponding charity race with a donation of 1,500 euros.
The “Berufliche Schulen Achern” vocational schools were able to get javelin throw world champions Christina Obergföll and Johannes Vetter on board for the event. And top athletes such as 90-year-old marathon runner Arne Haase, triathlete and ultramarathon runner Jörg Scheiderbauer, and players from the women’s Bundesliga SC Sand soccer team all tied their shoelaces for the race alongside students from the schools in order to run as many miles as possible for a good cause.
A triumph for everyone involved
As previously mentioned, the donation is going to the Förderverein für krebskranke Kinder e.V. children’s cancer society, which will be using the money for a number of its projects – a particularly special one being the “parents’ house” in Freiburg that it offers to parents so that they can be closer to their children while the latter are receiving treatment. Among other things, this means that support is provided not only to ill children, but also to their parents and siblings who need a supportive environment in which to stay while their family member receives treatment, which can often span periods of several weeks. If you want to take a look at the donation total so far, make sure to visit the “Berufliche Schulen Achern” homepage. In fact, expect it to rise significantly with the javelin throw event and the charity run! “This event is a triumph for everyone involved. The children’s cancer society is getting the support they need and the runners are doing something good for their own health,” says Stefan Grözinger, the head of HR Development, Training, and Occupational Health Management at Koehler.
