New Year’s Eve Run 2022 – We were there

At the Spiridon Mainova New Year’s Eve Run on 31 December 2022, almost 2,000 runners – including four of our employees and one of the Foundation’s sponsors – covered the 10 km distance in sunny weather of 18 degrees.
The Frankfurt Foundation for Children with Cancer was also represented with an information stand. Here, interested people could inform themselves about the current state of children’s cancer research.
In an interview on site, the Foundation’s Managing Director, Marcus Klüssendorf, made it clear that despite many years of significant scientific work in the Foundation’s own research house in Frankfurt’s Niederrad district, hardly anyone knows about the Frankfurt Foundation for Children with Cancer. “That has to change and we want to change that! Because we don’t receive any funding from the public sector, but finance ourselves purely from donations!”
Founded by affected parents almost 30 years ago, the non-profit organisation has been enabling intensive research in the field of childhood cancer for almost 20 years – with the aim that one day all children and adolescents suffering from cancer can be cured.
The Foundation’s Board of Directors would like to express its sincere thanks to Spiridon and Mainova AG for the opportunity to draw attention to this forward-looking activity in Frankfurt at this popular event.
