Compper and Rudy support “Anpfiff ins Leben”

Getting involved was the story of the day for Marvin Compper and Sebastian Rudy. The two 1899 Hoffenheim professionals, alongside youth players from Adler Mannheim and the Rhein-Neckar-Lions, as well as an up-and-coming golfing talent for the St. Leon-Rot golf club, were on hand to support “Anpfiff ins Leben” as they built a forest trail in Walldorf.

The course, designed with an element of Parkour in mind, was opened on 14th May in association with the "Anpfiff ins Leben" and their "Get Fit" events. Dietmar Hopp lent a helping hand in cutting the ribbon that officially opened the 2 kilometre long trail. Several top sports stars came out to show their support including Henning Fritz, goalkeeper of the German national handball team, Mannhein Adler striker Ronny Arendt, long-distance runner Simret Restle and national hockey player Mandy Haase. They were able to lend a helping hand, getting involved with the different stations throughout the forest route and setting a good example for the runners who were using the facility.

The sporting personalities had already fielded question from local journalists alongside Hansi Flick, the assistant coach of the German national football team, regarding the plans to implement comprehensive youth development. Meanwhile, Anton Nagl, the chairman of the "Anpfiff ins Leben" club, and the Mayor of Walldorf, Christine Staab, were present to officially greet the guests throughout the day.
