Helsana wins Sponsoring Award for Avatar Kids

The international Sponsoring Award prize-giving ceremony was held in Berlin on Tuesday, 28 November. Helsana comes in first place in the Public Sponsoring category with the projects Avatar Kids.


For the 24th time the Fachverband für Sponsoring-Agenturen und Dienstleister (FASPO) has chosen the best sponsoring projects from Switzerland, Germany and Austria. The Award is regarded as the most important German-language sponsoring prize and as a seal of approval for high-quality commitments. Prizes are awarded for projects in the categories sport, culture, media, public and innovation.

Helsana beats the entire competition and comes in first place with Avatar Kids.

An avatar robot enables children who can't go to school for some time due to illness to remain connected to their friends and school. As a gold partner of Avatar Kids, Helsana donates avatars to selected clinics and institutions every year. Helsana has drawn attention to Avatar Kids and its impact with the film "Rocket". It is the story of a young boy who has to leave his friends and school behind for cancer treatment. Thanks to the avatar robot Nao, he can still experience the grand moment when his rocket is unveiled before his whole class, "live".
