This message is too important not to spread! Have you ever heard of DKMS gemeinnützige GmbH and the fantastic work they do in the fight against blood cancer? When Tina recently came to us with a new idea for a #charity run (which aims to support it), we wanted to contribute to it.
But what is it about?
🩸 Tina Steinbiß is a member of AIAS Leipziv e.V., an organization that supports the #DKMS in its important work and raises awareness in the fight against blood cancer. Once a year, Medisport Leipzig organizes the so-called "stair run", where all 31 floors (750 steps!) of the MDR Tower are climbed for a good cause. All runners collect donations, 100% of which go to the DKMS via AIAS e.V.
🏃 Ten of our colleagues could not resist the opportunity to climb the stairs together to raise awareness for this important cause.
With an incredible time of only 4:35 minutes, our newest team member Lukas even took first place - congratulations! Once at the top, everyone was rewarded with a spectacular sunset over the city. Wasn't that worth it!
We are proud to have such an athletic #team and to be able to support Tina in this project with a donation. We hope that in the future even more people with blood cancer can be helped through the work of the DKMS. Every step (and every stair) gets us a little further in the right direction! If you're not already a blood stem cell donor, it's easy to sign up and become a lifesaver for a patient in need.
