Successful donation campaign at DEGRO 2017 in Berlin

Successful donation campaign at DEGRO 2017 in Berlin

According to our slogan “Precision for Treatment Success” our this year’s booth motto was “Precision Challenge @ Degro 2017”. On the indoor putting green at our booth we invited participants of the DEGRO to hole the ball at a distance of two and a half meters. On success, we promised to donate five Euros to the German Children's Cancer Foundation. The interest was, of course, huge and so the visitors managed to "sink" the golf ball 265 times.
