SPORT AND HEALTH

 

In line with the motto “Staying Active”, we believe in a happy and healthy society, and that sport strengthens family relationships and has a major influence on personal development. Physical and mental health are our greatest asset and are largely our own responsibility. As a company, however, we can raise awareness, take the necessary precautions and provide support in case of illness. Promoting young talent and sport in the region is also very important to us. In doing so, we are following the example of our company founder, who was a keen sportsman.

THE GERMAN SPORTING AWARDS

 

Since 2013, Ernsting’s family has been a national sponsor of the German Sporting Awards (Deutsche Sportabzeichen), which our founder Kurt Ernsting always enthusiastically supported during his lifetime. We are happy to be working with a strong partner to do something for the health of our children and the fitness of adults. Because a fit society is a healthy and happy society.

Herzenswünsche e.V.

 

Ernsting’s family and Herzenswünsche e.V. have been working closely together since the  charitable association was founded in 1992. Since then, we have been able to raise over 4 million euros for seriously ill children and young people through donations, our charity collection and other campaigns. This has financed countless vital stays at health resorts and has helped to make many young patients’ greatest dreams come true.

SPORT IN OUR HOME REGION

 

Supporting young people is important to Ernsting’s family – in sport too. Sport not only contributes greatly to a happy and healthy lifestyle but also has a major influence on personal development. With around 800 participants each year, the National German Youth Tennis Tournament is one of the biggest German youth tennis tournaments for the age groups U9, U10, U11 and U12. Many of the biggest names in German tennis history, like Boris Becker, Steffi Graf, Angelique Kerber, Tommy Haas and Sabine Lisicki, have won this tournament. Ernsting’s family has been the main sponsor of the tournament since 2015 and presents the Ernsting’s family Cup for the best girls and boys in the U12 age group.
