For the first time, the motto in mid-July was: YOU HAVE TO FIGHT! tennis trophy with Andrea Petkovic and Jonathan Heimes. Professional tennis player Andrea Petkovic and her friend and former Hessian Junior Tennis Champion “Johnny” Heimes, who had been diagnosed with cancer at an early age, collected donations for children and teens with cancer.
Headed by Svenja Voigt and Christoph Symeonidis, the PP event team and others volunteered their services, assuming responsibility for organizing and implementing the 2015 YOU HAVE TO FIGHT! tennis trophy and the following summer party.
Company representatives and private people had the opportunity to play a match with well-known tennis players for a donation during the tennis trophy at the TEC Darmstadt facilities, the local club of Andrea Petkovic and Jonathan Heimes.
PP has already been volunteering its services for the YOU HAVE TO FIGHT! charity initiative launched by tennis star Andrea Petkovic and Jonathan “Johnny” Heimes for some time now. The Frankfurt event agency supports the non-profit organization by implementing charity events and acquiring sponsors and partners.
“With our efforts, we want to help raise awareness of the YOU HAVE TO FIGHT! initiative,” explains Christoph Symeonidis, member of the management.
Events and other promotions for the YOU HAVE TO FIGHT! charity series have already raised a six-figure sum in donations.
Proceeds go to a project of Hilfe für krebskranke Kinder Frankfurt e.V. that helps children with cancer play sports. According to Jonathan Heimes, who came up with the idea for the initiative, “Sports work like a medicine.”
