Reaching out in solidarity
A father who lost his child to cancer. A young woman who herself was confronted with cancer at the age of eleven. As someone who is affected, you develop a special understanding and deep empathy for other people who are going through similar things. You know from experience about the long struggle and the unspeakable pain of losing a child to cancer.
For this reason, it is of immense personal importance to Juliana Felder and Thomas Posch to collect donations for people in similar situations. Juliana Felder successfully organised the charity golf tournament in Meggen for the second time, raising an astonishing CHF 60,000. She was delighted to be able to donate CHF 50,000 to the Swiss Paediatric Oncology Group, or SPOG for short. This group is committed to clinical research in order to provide children with cancer with the most age-appropriate and individualised treatment possible. The remaining CHF 10,000 are going to Childhood Cancer Aid Central Switzerland to support affected children and their families during this hard period. Thomas Posch, on the other hand, put his physical strength to good use and hit the pedals. In 26 daily stages, he and his colleague cycled 2,180 km and overcame around 25,000 metres of altitude around Switzerland - in all weathers. With his solidarity and sporting performance, he collected an impressive CHF 9,700 for children with cancer.
Juliana and Thomas, two different life stories, but with the same goal: to help people in situations they know all too well and to reach out in solidarity.
On behalf of Childhood Cancer Aid Central Switzerland, we would like to thank Juliana and Thomas for their sporting activities and their exceptional commitment!
