Bayern Munich duo Leon Goretzka and Joshua Kimmich have raised more than €4 million for their charity campaign, #WeKickCorona.
Over 3,500 people have donated to the cause which includes footballers: Mats Hummels, Jonas Hector, Lukas Klostermann, Julian Draxler, Leroy Sané and Timo Werner amongst other high profile stars.
Alexander Zverev (Tennis) and Dennis Schröder (NBA) have also donated to the cause as well as a number of private donors.
“We have the responsibility to make sure it’s going to the right places,” Kimmich told DFB.de.
Bayern Munich CEO Karl-Heinz Rummenigge praised the work of the duo: “This initiative is a fine example of how our players can be role models to the rest of the society and how we can all come together during this crisis.”
