Roth Champions for Fabi
Spectacular charity auctions in support of the family man suffering from cancer with special personal donations from the top stars, including Sebastien Kienle’s original bike from Hawaii.
There has never been anything like it: Roth champions Patrick Lange, Anne Haug, Sebastian Kienle and Andi Dreitz have donated their own personal equipment to auction for a good cause. From today until next Friday 29 October triathlon fans and collectors can buy Sebi Kienle’s original Hawaii bike from 2019, a training day with Patrick Lange, a signed competition helmet from Anne Haug or a race suit from Andi Dreitz by bidding in four simultaneous online auctions.
All proceeds go to the #togetherforFabi campaign
A few months ago, 28-year-old father, Fabian Harrer, from the Roth region received the devastating diagnosis of pancreatic cancer. However, conventional treatments have not worked. A new and costly virus treatment could be the solution, but health insurance does not cover it, which is why Fabi's friends created the hashtag #togetherforFabi to help him. With the “Roth champions for Fabi” campaign, various items are available during the auction period to help raise funds for the costly treatment.
An absolute highlight - the 2018 Roth winner Sebastian Kienle has donated his Hawaii bike for the charity auction for the charity campaign complete with start number and original componentry. Sebastian Kienle clinched an outstanding third place on his bike at the last championships in Hawaii in 2019, not least because of his high-end time trial bike from Scott (please contact us for details). The highest bidder can win a totally unique item and at the same time support the good cause.
The auction of a training day with Patrick Lange is also one-of-a-kind. The reigning Roth champion will give the highest bidder a deep insight into his daily training routine and for sure reveal one or two insider tips! The training day will take place in spring, either in Patrick Lange's hometown of Salzburg or in the Roth triathlon region.
Anne Haug also immediately agreed to support the #togetherforFabi campaign and is making her time trial helmet available for auction. This year's Hawaii winner wore the helmet during her first win in 2021 at Challenge St. Pölten. The highest bidder receives the helmet signed by the reigning world champion.
Be as fast as Andi Dreitz - at least in theory this is possible with the blue and white racing suit of the 2019 Roth champion. The suit is manufactured by RenéRosa in the Roth triathlon region and is delivered to the highest bidder in plastic-free packaging.
Everyone pulls together in the triathlon region
Kathrin Walchshöfer-Helneder, managing director of TEAMCHALLENGE and initiator of the project, is very impressed by the helpfulness of the top stars. “When we heard Fabi's story, it hit us very personally. Everyone here in the region helps in any way they can and we can help to activate our triathlon community. Patrick, Sebi, Anne and Andi immediately accepted without hesitation and made such high-quality and unique prizes available. Now we hope the auctions will be well received and that a large amount will be raised to support Fabi. TEAMCHALLENGE will round up the amount."
Before the "Roth Champions for Fabi" fundraiser, Fabi's friends had already launched various projects, for example the local football clubs raised over 7,000 euros at various games and auctioned a jersey from Bayern striker, Robert Lewandowski. At DATEV Challenge Roth powered by hep, athlete Georg Knoll raised almost 19,000 euros for Fabi.
