10,000 € for Children with Cancer

07.12.2018

Koehler makes a donation to Freiburg association Förderverein für krebskranke Kinder e.V. This year, Koehler will add 10,000 Euros to the pot that it has collected through the “Koehler radelt” cycling campaign. Employees collected kilometers while cycling to and from work and the total of 100,000 kilometers was then converted into a monetary total.

10,000 € for Children with Cancer

“One of my best duties is keeping this now regular appointment,” says Kai Furler, CEO of the Koehler Paper Group, while presenting Bernd Rendler with an oversized check for 10,000 euros.


Parents’ home also offers a space for healthy siblings

Bernd Rendler is a board member of the Förderverein für krebskranke Kinder e.V. in Freiburg and has been actively collecting donations for over 32 years to enable it to support families who have children with cancer. The support it offers is not just for sick children. The parents’ home in Freiburg also offers parents and healthy siblings a place to sleep during the often week-long stays.

The house is currently bursting at the seams. “Due to the relocation of the children's clinic, we are currently planning a new building and are grateful for every donation,” says Rendler. There are currently around 9,000 donors, 60 percent of whom tend to donate smaller amounts. The new parents’ house will cost over 10 million euros. Running the current facility alone costs over 60,000 euros a month.

A win-win situation for all concerned

This year, Koehler will add 10,000 euros to the pot that it has collected through the “Koehler radelt” cycling campaign. Employees collected kilometers while cycling to and from work and the total of 100,000 kilometers was then converted into a monetary total.
In principle, it is a win-win situation for everyone concerned. The Förderverein gets the support it needs while Koehler's employees stay fit, as Kai M. Furler, whose father Klaus Furler is on the board of trustees of the association, explains.

On a regular basis, but never for granted

Thanks to his initiative and the support he has received from many people, Bernd Rendler has created excellent conditions for sick children in Freiburg. He stresses: “Even though receiving this check is now a regular occurrence, it will never be taken for granted.” A sentiment that also very much applies to Rendler's own commitment to the initiative.
