Overview

Small gestures can have a big impact

Mit kleinen Gesten grosses Bewirken

Janis Wiederkehr has been playing for TV Endingen since he was seven. He has already won the regional championships and regional cup, and was crowned Swiss champion in the under-13s category. This season, he is playing for U15 Inter.

Buoyed by his success, the 13-year old has discovered a burning sporting ambition; his goal is to continue winning with his team and play his way into the upper echelons of the sport. His biggest dream is therefore to go to a sports school. To cover the costs of switching to a sports school, he presented his project on the ibelieveinyou.ch crowdfunding platform. He has already raised nearly 3,500 francs, enough to pay for an SBB GA travel card and part of his school fees. And thanks to ibelieveinyou.ch and Helsana, Janis has been going to the sports school in Buchs since August 2016.

"I am super happy about all the support," the young handball player rejoices. To thank all his backers, Janis has come up with a range of goodies for them to choose from, including short match reports via WhatsApp, personal letters and original, signed handball T-Shirts. He also actively committed to a good cause for Helsana: he did the shopping for his neighbour, took care of her garden and brought her flowers – a moving commitment Helsana is happy to honour.

Helsana would like to wish Janis lots more fun and success during his time at sports school in Buchs.
