Donation handover at the DRF Luftrettung station in Göttingen: The “Die Bergsteiger” team took part in the “Harzer Hexentrail” competition in September and now presented the Göttingen air rescue service with a donation check for 3,000 euros.

Sporting challenge for a good cause: this year’s seventh “Harzer Hexentrail” took place on September 3rd. The participants started in small groups of four to seven people in Osterrode in the Harz Mountains, provided that a team donation for charitable purposes had been approved. The hiking group “Die Bergsteiger” also ran the round of around 60 kilometers in length and a crisp 1,700 meters in altitude and now sent their donation back to the DRF Luftrettung. On November 5, the athletes visited the station and handed over a donation check for 3,000 euros at the helicopter. Station manager and pilot Dennis Lauterberg, emergency doctor Dr. Dominik Dahlke and paramedic Silja Gers accepted the donation and thanked them warmly on behalf of the entire DRF Luftrettung. Dennis Lauterberg particularly emphasized that it wasn’t the first donation: “Of course we are very pleased that the ‘Die Bergsteiger’ team is once again donating their contribution to the DRF Luftrettung. So now a total of 6,500 euros have come together over the years. That is a great appreciationof our work, for which we thank you from the bottom of our hearts. We also know the Harz Mountains from our day-to-day work, as we are regularly alerted to the region. In the valleys, some of which are remote and can only be reached by road after a long journey, the helicopter clearly demonstrates its time advantage again and again.”
