Today was the Farewell-Event for my next zis-Fundraising-Tour. Family, friends, sponsors, supporters, politicians and media representatives gathered at the Heidelberg city hall to send me symbolically on my next ride. Ruprecht Poensgen from zis, Dr. Luitgard Nipp-Stolzenburg representing Prof. Dr. Eckart Wuerzner, Lord Mayor of Heidelberg, as well as Maik Brandt, Mayor of Meckesheim, and Jürgen Lux, Partner at the international consultancy and long-term sponsor BearingPoint, said a few words about how they see this project and why they support it. Afterwards, there was the opportunity to chat and network over coffee and dinner. Very encouraging to feel all this goodwill and support.
