Have a heart for disabled sports

The fundraising campaign for PluSport via the Sanitas Active app was a huge success, raising CHF 7,220 for PluSport.

Last September we used various channels to inform our customers that they had until the end of the year to donate any coins they earned in the Sanitas Active app to PluSport. The campaign was well received by our customers, with Active app users donating CHF 7,220 to the Swiss umbrella organisation for disabled sport. Thanks to this great success, we’ve decided to continue the fundraising campaign this year. On receiving the cheque at the handover event, René Pfister, Sponsoring & Events at PluSport, said: “We’re very grateful for this generous donation from Sanitas customers. We’ll be able to take a lot of action ourselves thanks to the coins collected by their sporting activities!” 

PluSport puts the donations to good use: 90 regional sports clubs and over 100 sports camps for children and adults offer a broad range of traditional sports and new sports trends. Or, like the donation of CHF 7,220, they are put towards the fund for medical aids and prostheses. PluSport pays contributions towards the cost of new sports prostheses. Such custom-made products are very expensive and the costs are not usually covered by health insurance.

PluSport ambassador Joachim Röthlisberger (30) from Bern was also at the cheque handover. He competed in the Winter Paralympics at Sochi in 2014 in the Super-G, Giant slalom, Slalom and Alpine combined events. Joachim was born with arthrogryposis, a physical disability characterised by severe joint stiffness and poorly developed muscles from the shoulders to the fingertips.

PluSport Disabled Sports Switzerland supports people with disabilities by offering programmes for all types of sport and exercise. Donations are used exclusively for this purpose. PluSport also organises sporting events, such as their national PluSport Day, ski days, football tournaments, open days for modern sports such as climbing, karate, kayaking, sailing, and many more. In the area of competitive sport, PluSport promotes young talent and ensures that ambitious athletes can take part in national and international competitions with Swiss Paralympic.
