The Swiss Sports Aid Foundation

Swiss Sports Aid Foundation

As part of its commitment to the Roger Federer Foundation, Sunrise supports the Swiss Sports Aid Foundation's sponsorship program. 

The Swiss Sports Aid Foundation (Schweizer Sporthilfe)
The Swiss Sports Aid Foundation supports Swiss athletes on their way to becoming the world's best in their sport. Particularly for young athletes and those who participate in niche sports, where there is no media coverage, big sponsors or large prize money winnings, the Sports Aid Foundation helps performance-focused athletes and their families handle the financial challenges.

The forty sponsored athletes supported by the Roger Federer Foundation come from financially disadvantaged families. They are between the ages of ten and sixteen and mostly practice niche sports, such as fencing, chess or sport climbing.
