Boxing for the Soul
Raiko Morales’ project is included in the projects that are now being funded by help alliance. The fire safety officer at Lufthansa Technik works at the Group’s occupational safety unit, and is firmly anchored in boxing outside his work. His project in Brazil focuses on the integrative power of (boxing) sport – and encourages children and young people to learn.
Germany is world champion! At least in autumn 2014, when Lufthansa employee Raiko Morales arrives at Recife in Sao Lourenço Da mata with his Brazilian fiancée Daiane and his six-month-old son Adriano in order to introduce the youngest family member to his relatives. It is also the first visit to Brazil for the father.
Morales is a boxer, was active himself in his youth, then switched to the coaching side early on and today is even active as a functionary in the national boxing federation. He is also the owner of the Bundesliga boxing team Hamburg Giants.
