Charity event with a double goal
Since 2020, the non-profit organisation “Happy Feet” has been organising football camps for children and adolescents in Coppet in the canton of Vaud, Switzerland. All proceeds are donated to charity. “Happy Feet” consists of 19- to 21-year-old students from the University of St.Gallen (HSG) who are passionate about football, want to hand on their passion to children and adolescents, and have set themselves the goal of making a difference in the world. The summer camps do good on two levels: first of all, they promote youth and physical education through football; secondly, all proceeds are donated to a range of charities that share the values of Happy Feet.
This year, the “HSG World Cup for Charity” was brought into being – a football tournament at which donations were collected for a good cause. It was held for the first time on 20 May 2022 and was a hit from the start: more than 150 players took part and around 200 fans attended to cheer their teams on. This fantastic event raised donations totalling CHF 2,067 for Childhood Cancer Switzerland.
Thank you to everyone involved!
