At the next home game against SCR Altach (Saturday April 15, kick-off 18:30) the Rapid family will swing into action: players and advisors, business partners, club executives and management, club employees, the board and all fans who wish to help Sergej can take part in a collection. The proceeds will all be put towards the necessary therapy for our Rapid legend.
On Easter Monday (April 17) Mandreko's club LAC Inter will take part in a Legends Benefit Match, which will also feature Rapid greats from days' past. CEO Christoph Peschek and two Rapid players will be on hand to hand over the entire proceeds, whilst the two players will also be signing autographs for fans.
CEO Business Christoph Peschek: "The Rapid family comes together particularly in times of hardship. This is a matter of great importance and clearly the club will take part in these benefit events for one of its most distinguished players. Through our collection at the home game against Altach we want to do our bit to support Sergej and ensure he gets the therapy he needs. We are hoping for lots of donations."
Club Service Leader Andy Marek: "I had the pleasure of getting to know Sergej during the period when we were cup winners, league champions and Cup Winner’s Cup finalists. We also spent time together later through our youth training camps. He is a fighter, and its exactly this quality that he now needs. Sergej was always the first to step forwards to help others, and that’s exactly what we are now going to do - help!"
