[MARCH 2019] FIREFIGHTER TAKES THE CHALLENGE !
KAI EICHLER is a firefighter, as are about 1.3 million other firefighters in Germany.
At almost 4 million operations every year, our fire department is on hand. They help with fires, natural disasters and also in traffic accidents. They save lives - often in difficult circumstances, and not only in Germany but worldwide.
Many firefighters do their duty honorary, they are not in a professional fire brigade - these forces are indispensable to ensure general help.
KAI EICHLER will tackle the Megarace 2020 and he will take an additional piece of gear at each lifebase (there are 6 of them) at the end full equipped to cross the finish line - after 1,000 km. KAI EICHLER starts as a runner and finishes as a firefighter. We symbolically make it clear that volunteering is not carried on the skin but in the heart.
Our fire departments are important and indispensable worldwide - they need our support and they need new blood. We want to draw attention to that!
In addition, we will launch a fundraiser for "HELP FOR HELPERS", which collects funds for firefighters who crash in their missions. Likewise, the collected funds strengthen the training of firefighters.
I am very happy that KAI EICHLER is facing this task and wish him all the best for the preparation!
