Carmen Garcia Fernandez, mom to Javi, and one of our spectacular team members/fundraisers, found out last night that she won her employer’s worldwide contest, DHL’s Got Heart. Carmen entered the contest with a goal of raising awareness of PWS and money for RFR.
Carmen chose to hold a padel tournament in Madrid , Spain and the event was a great success. She then went on to win a series of competitions within DHL and made it to the final 3 entrants. Last night , at a gala in Venice, Italy, Carmen was announced as the overall winner. The prize for winning was 25,000€, all of which will be donated to RFR!
Here is the video that was shown at the gala, in which Carmen explains her mission and what it means to her.
Thank you Carmen for your amazing accomplishment and your support of RFR!
