In the "Get moving against cancer" charity campaign, the organisers encourage all participants to get physically active. Whether it be cycling, fitness training, swimming or rowing - everything is possible; this means that, in addition to the good cause, the health of all participants is also being promoted. Additional sponsors and supporters are of course welcome to get involved. The main sponsor of the ''Get moving against cancer,'' campaign is SNP Schneider-Neureither & Partner SE. TSG Hoffenheim are also proud to support this admirable initiative.
The "Beweg Dich gegen Krebs" app can be downloaded for free at beweg-dich-gegen-krebs.de. The campaign will start on 16 October. Participants can share their personal experiences on social media using #bewegdichgegenkrebs. ''In 'Get moving against cancer', each and every person can take part in physical activity either as an individual or as part of a team of four,'' says Joachim Wiskemann, sports scientist and director of the Oncological Sports and Exercise Therapy Group at NCT Heidelberg and Heidelberg University Hospital (UKHD). Special prizes will act as extra motivation for participants to get active and be generous when making donations. The proceeds from individual, team and sponsor donations will go towards the "Exercise and Cancer" patient programme at NCT Heidelberg.
"Experience from day-to-day medical practice shows us that there is a high demand for qualified exercise programmes for oncological patients. The donations will help us to continue and expand the exercise programme at NCT Heidelberg," says Dirk Jäger, managing director at NCT Heidelberg and head of medical oncology at UKHD.
