WDR 2 Christmas miracle: Players and parents raise big donation

"Score goals for mothers in need": The parents of the U8 to U15 teams at Bayer 04 have again joined in with the charity event "Christmas miracle" organised by WDR this year. This time the money raised through the privately organised fundraiser will be used to help mothers in need.

The idea behind it: Parents donated a set sum for every goal scored by their son's team over the past few weeks. The coaches and other staff at the Performance Centre also joined in. An impressive €2,200 was raised – and it was presented to WDR at the weekend.

The players of the Leverkusen U8 team, together with their parents and representing all players and parents at the Kurtekotten Performance Centre, were invited to the WDR studios in Düsseldorf on Sunday morning.

Following the presentation of the donation and a live interview with radio presenter Thomas Bug there was an opportunity to have a shot at the goal brought by the Bayer 04 U8s for a small donation – and that added an extra €200 to the total raised.
