Under this motto, 48 enthusiastic runners of the VariothermSports team once again took part in this year's RED NOSE RUN in Leobersdorf. Young and old totalled many kilometres to raise funds for the valuable work of the RED NOSES. Each of the 568 kilometres covered by the Variotherm team (from a total of 4,588 km) raises cash for the Clowndoctors and thus benefits the young patients in paediatric surgery, cardiology, oncology and intensive care wards. Young people in special and remedial education institutions and adults in geriatric and rehabilitation centres are tended to by the Clowndoctors.

For over 20 years, the Red Nose Clowndoctors have been bringing joyful and light-hearted moments to sick people. They assist patients with their positive energy and their joie de vivre, helping them become well again and find their way back into life. In 2015, 66 RED NOSE clowns throughout Austria completed over 3,500 deployments and for over 10,500 hours, they brought smiles to the faces of children and adults alike, and we all know that smiles can work wonders ...

Our sincere thanks to the team of Bobbys-Sport and the market town of Leobersdorf that made this RED NOSE RUN in Leobersdorf possible for the eighth time now with their passion and energy. "As an adult, and especially as a parent, the biggest concern is the health of your children. If one of your children falls ill – which unfortunately can happen to anyone – every positive experience can help them take courage. And especially in times like these, laughter, happy moments and some diversion are more important than ever. The Clowndoctors work to achieve this through their tireless work and their zest for life. By organising the RED NOSE RUN in Leobersdorf, we are able to make a small contribution to this indispensable work," said Bobby Agboatwala, owner and CEO of Bobbys-Sport.
