It's especially great that we can combine this with a running challenge from the footballers. "

Thanks to the generous support of sjs lawyers and REWE, the team can now not only do something for their fitness, but also provide valuable help for those in need. If the Corona rules allow, we will also help on site with the preparation of the meals in due course and in this way take on social responsibility. ”Daniel Vollbrecht will also participate with the A-youth of the JSG Schwarz-Gelb Participate in the challenge so that the number of kilometers run should increase significantly again. Alex Kitke from REWE is already looking forward to the result: "I hope that our support will trigger the players' willingness to work and that the result will be great in the end." transmitted.
