Cheers to the foundation’s work!

Foundations Day is the central and Europe-wide day of action for foundations of all kinds and aims to draw attention to their work. Few people know how many foundations there actually are and what they have done for society over the centuries and continue to do. This day should therefore be used to highlight the motives, commitment and successes of founders.

In Germany, there are 23,876 legally capable foundations under civil law. 92% of the foundations have exclusively tax-privileged, i.e. charitable, benevolent or eccleasiastical purposes. It is gratifying to note that last year in particular, significantly more foundations were set up than in previous years. Social, educational and cultural issues are particularly close to the hearts of the founders.

Health and sports account for 20% of the foundations established. And so are we – Stiftung Juno Kinderkrebshilfe: We support projects that benefit children with cancer and their families, both in therapy and in aftercare. We fund research projects and aim to strengthen national and international networks that investigate the causes of tumor and blood diseases in children and adolescents. This is intented to advance diagnostics and treatment as well as holistic psychosocial care. Stiftung Juno Kinderkrebshilfe is still in process, but soon, actors in the fight against childhood cancer will also be able to submit funding applications to us.

We are proud to be part of such a large foundation network and are happy to be able to make things happen and give something back to society together with our foundation colleagues!

Interesting information and figures on foundation work can be found on the website of the Association of German Foundations.

Every step counts: First donation handover of the LEX Partner Cup 2021

Together with nine premium partners, the LEX Laufexperten launched the LEX Partner Cup 2021 for the first time. For the nationwide running event, exercise enthusiasts were able to assign themselves to their favorite brand via the free LEX Laufexperten app from April 16 to May 1 and have their run kilometers recorded via the app’s tracking function. Every step counted: all kilometers covered, whether jogging, walking, hiking or strolling, were rewarded with 5 cents by the respective premium partner.

Within 16 days, the 809 runners covered a distance of almost 40,000 kilometers. This corresponds to a journey through a total of 14 European countries: from Rome to Ankara via Bilbao to Gran Canaria, from Norway via Switzerland to the coast of Andalusia. Michael Tiemann, managing director of LEX Laufexperten and initiator of the campaign, is delighted with the total donation of 3,400 euros. His goal of combining his passion for sports with a commitment to children with cancer has been a complete success. Since he has a personal connection to the disease cancer, he wanted to use the opportunity to support national and international network projects in the field of sports with the help of our foundation. No sooner said than done! And after this successful conclusion of the LEX Partner Cup 2021, nothing stands in the way of an annual repetition.

We would like to thank all motivated runners, LEX Laufexperten and the nine premium partners for our first fundraising campaign and are looking forward to a long-term cooperation with LEX Laufexperten and future sports projects!

First member of the Board of Trustees has been appointed

On the Easter weekend, our board member Eric Schierholz met with Harald C. Jaeger. We are not only pleased about the news that the CEO of the investment consulting company Vogelweid Communications GmbH and co-founder of the cloud platform dicehub will in future take a place on the board of trustees of Stiftung Juno Kinderkrebshilfe. Together with the co-sponsor Altmünsterhof Mainz, he also directly donated 5.000 euros.

We thank you for so much engagement and look forward to valuable input and great collaboration in the months and years to come!

LEX Partner Cup: Running for a good cause

We are pleased to announce the first major fundraiser for Stiftung Juno Kinderkrebshilfe. Our motto “active against childhood cancer” is doubly true here: because every kilometer counts at the nationwide LEX running event #LPC2021. No matter if you run, walk or hike – for every kilometer you cover, 5 cents will be credited to our account. Premium partners of the LEX running experts donate, which means that the participants only care about their fitness and do not have to do anything else. Participation is of course also free of charge!

The campaign will start on April 16, 2021, and every step will count for two weeks!

Interested people can already download the app onto their cell phones: www.lex-events.de/lex-app

We say THANK YOU and are excited to see which distance the brave runners will cover in the end!

Kick-off: Our first fundraising project

Defeating childhood cancer – that is our long-term goal. An important component of the therapy is sport. For many years, a positive connection between sport and the fight against childhood cancer has been scientifically proven time and again. Our goal is to implement sports therapy not only as a helpful add-on, but as a permanent component of standard care. In adult cancer treatment, this is already the standard in some subsets. So why not for children and young people too?

The FORTEe research project conducts research on personalized sports therapy and innovative technologies in pediatric oncology and is supported by an EU research program. 16 institutions from 8 different countries are working together for this purpose. We want to further strengthen the existing structures of the project and support research beyond the funds and projects already funded. In particular, the exploration of sports with innovative technology (for example augmented reality) is close to our hearts.

We are happy if you support us in this – contact us for more information or donate directly here.
