On September 7, the student sports department and the RWTH University Sports Center (HSZ) presented the Right to Play organization with a donation check in the amount of 6,161 euros. This impressive sum was achieved through the charity action Never Forget Sporthalle Königshügel. In the process, mementos were made from the parquet floor of the demolished sports hall.


The demolition of the Königshügel sports hall is progressing rapidly. In the meantime, the work has also reached the facade of the building. In the midst of this, a very special check handover took place on the lawn of the Königshügel Stadium. Peter Lynen, director of the HSZ, as well as Juliana Kirchhoff, sports department of the student unions, presented Luis Kramer from Right to Play Germany with a donation worth 6,161 Euros.

This donation was achieved through the charity action Never Forget Sporthalle Königshügel of the HSZ and sports department. In the process, unique mementos were created from the parquet floor of the hall and then sold via the crowdfunding platform Start Next. The proceeds of the campaign have now gone to Right to Play. The international aid organization teaches children vital life skills through play and sport. The money from the donation is not intended for a specific project, but will be used where it is needed most. Luis Kramer from the organization Right to Play Germany is overwhelmed by the amount of donations reached. He says it always means a lot to the organization to be supported by donations from sporting events and campaigns. They greatly appreciate the long-standing partnership with the RWTH Aachen University Sports Center and are pleased to be able to use the substantial amount to help children in Asia, Africa and the Middle East become self-determined decision-makers of tomorrow.
