It’s been quite some time since I last travelled and spent the night somewhere else then at home. Mission fit-to-fly started some time ago because I am travelling to Sweden and Finland next week and needed to see if I’m actually fit and will manage the stressfulness of travelling and everything that comes along with it.
I decided to accept the invitation from Greenhope for the “Dinner for Hope” in Lugano almost last minute and it was a decision I would not regret. The travelling was tiring, however I managed quite well and only needed one break on the way.
Once we got there, I would relax by the pool and not do too much, knowing that the evening with the apero and the dinner would be quite challenging, and I needed to be well-recovered for that. At 6pm I meet with the founder of the Greenhope foundation, Luca Cereghetti and the moderator for the night, Julie Arlin. They would walk me through the evening and I would then prepare myself for the upcoming interview questions.
I first heard about Greenhope foundation and their cause of Sports against Cancer in Davos through a Charity-Game they had organized there. And then through my own call for action last year about donation of my sports clothes. Their concept of organizing events for the entire family of a kid that is suffering from cancer struck me right away. Other concepts I heard of so far have always been about the kid that’s suffering. Greenhope however organizes events where whole families participate and get to forget about cancer for a day, most of the time not even able to pin point the kids suffering, which in my opinion makes the Greenhope foundation so special and worth supporting.
The dinner at the Villa Sassa in Lugano was a success even though I was completely exhausted at the end of the night! 😀 11’000 CHF was raised, not bad right!? Greenhope is organizing a Greenhope Day #MadeInSweatzerland on the 8./9. June 2019 where you could participate and add to this cause of #SportsagainstCancer!
