Roger to help project launch

12.10.2006 | Off Court

A quarter of all kids between the age of 6 and 12 in Switzerland are too corpulent. To make physical activity more interesting for this age-group the Cleven-Becker Foundation has launched a projects called Fit-4-Future.


All primary and secondary schools in the area of Basel can apply to take part in the initiative to promote physical activity. 50 schools will be chosen in the end and will receive toy-containers, containing sporting equipment such as soccer balls, Frisbees and tennis rackets. "We would like to give children the possibility to play with the sets and become active", said retired businessman Hans-Dieter Cleven (60). The main ambassador for the Foundation, which is now two years old, is ex-tennis star Boris Becker.


Roger will also contribute to the project. The Basel-based private Bank Sarasin will sponsor 1'000 Swiss Francs for every ace Roger hits during the Swiss Indoors in Basel; at least 25'000 Francs. Go, Roger!

Playing at home must be very special. You are everywhere in a year. I think being a tennis player also means traveling around the world in this way. You'll play well as we all support you. Basel is a place you like of course, which is
