Social involvement- Schalke 04
Schalke 04 sees it as being of high relevance to organise fundraising events.
On a regular basis, the club organises different fundraising events to collect financial means to support the programmes and initiatives, delivered by the Foundation “Schalke half!”.
In July 2009, the club organised the two-days T-Home-Cup event that was attended among others by FC Schalke 04, FC Bayern München, VfB Stuttgart and Hamburg SV. The tournament that took place in the VELTINS-Arena raised among others money for the community and social responsibility programmes of the club.
Moreover, from 2009 until 2013, different celebrities and first team Schalke 04 players took part in harness races to raise money for “Schalke hilft!”.
In 2014, the 8th Charity Golf-cup took place, in support of the foundation. Overall, 180 guests were invited.
In 2013, the entire Schalke 04 first team squad, including trainer team, visited 250 children and young adults in four hospitals. At each institution, a check of 10.000 Euro was handed over. Moreover, the children received tickets to the VELTINS-Arena.
