Side-by-side tandem for the little Jörn
Six year old Jörn from Bobstadt (Germany), got a Fun2Go side-by-side tandem from the ‘Athletes for Charity’ foundation. They help sick and disadvantaged children. At the age of two, Jörn developed an inflammation in the brain. He stayed in the hospital for several months after which he underwent rehabilitation. Because of the damage to the brain, Jörn has a mental disability and he had to relearn a lot, such as walking and sitting. Jörn loves activities a lot, he then really flourishes, says Marco Steffan, founder of the foundation.
With the help of many associations, companies, supporters, contributors, charities and a donation from Niklas Guste, the director of the bicycle shop E-Motion in Worms, the foundation was able to buy the bicycle for Jörn. Jörn’s mother said that with the arrival of the side-by-side tandem a dream came true.
