On Monday, August 21, 2017, representatives of the Friedensau Adventist University (ThHF) presented the proceeds of the 2017 ‘Waldlauf für den guten Zweck’ to the Sozialkaufhaus ‘Brauchbar’ Burg. A donation sum of 7,000.00 Euro, won by sponsors and runners, was achieved! The money will now benefit an extension project of the social institution of the Aufbruch e.V. in Burg.
Christian Hübler, representative of the student council and head of the organization team, thanked the 145 runners, who ran with 1,088 laps for a good cause. Thanks also to the main sponsors, Sparkasse Jerichower Land and Stadtwerke Burg; the Neue Flora-Apotheke, Polilux – the culture magazine for the Jerichower Land, the Wohnungsbaugesellschaft Burg (WoBau), Burger Küchenmöbel GmbH, the German Olympic Sports Federation (DOSB) – integration through sport, the Church of the Seventh-Day Adventists Friedensau, TÜV Nord Mobilität GmbH & Co KG, Area Halle/Magdeburg, and, last but not least, the employees of the Association Aufbruch e.V., with Jan Eiglmeier and Andreas Fehrecke. Particularly noteworthy is the commitment of the students of the Friedensau Adventist University, who were involved in the framework program and the organization of the Waldlauf für den guten Zweck, the university management, who also rounded up the donation amount, and Landrat Steffen Burchhardt, who regularly accompanies the project and has supported the project convincingly for years.
The Association Aufbruch e.V., which includes the Sozialkaufhaus ‘Brauchbar’ in Burg, Bahnhofstraße 7, works as a search-aid association in the care of addicts and addiction prevention. The Sozialkaufhaus ‘Brauchbar’ project brings addicts and long-term unemployed people into jobs subject to social insurance, thus increasing their chances on the labor market. Here, furniture, household items and clothing are kept in the economic cycle for a longer period of time and sold at a low price. The Sozialkaufhaus is open Monday to Friday from 9 am to 4 pm for the purchase and distribution of donations in kind.
