We built a rock-climbing based active exercise therapy for patients who are suffering from blood diseases together with the mountaineering and ski-school VIVALPIN. The program has been implemented and accepted with great joy from our patients and has been awarded with the Philos prize (2nd) and the Günter Landbeck Excellence Award in 2013. We would like to thank the entire team for their special engagement and the affectionate care of our chronically sick patients.
