20 Aug, 23

In the last month, we witnessed devastating floods that affected some areas of our Slovenia. I invite you to join me on August 23 at 6:00 p.m. at the Congress Square in Ljubljana, where I will be happy to sign autographs and take photos with you. ✍️🤳 For each photo and signature, I will donate 10 euros to charity for repairing the damage and helping those affected by the floods. Regardless of your number, we will donate a total of at least 10,000 euros.

I am already looking forward to meeting you all in Ljubljana. Thank you.

Yesterday, on the congress square in Ljubljana, we experienced an extraordinary event that united the hearts of all the inhabitants of Slovenia. Sport has an extraordinary unifying power, which we once again felt on this occasion. But the event was not only sporting in nature, but also demonstrated deep philanthropy.

Tadej Pogačar, an outstanding cyclist and proud ambassador of our country, stepped into the forefront of charity. With his unique approach, he gathered 1,793 signatures and 1,214 photos, and topped it all off with a donation of 10,000 euros. This wonderful sum of 30,000 euros will be dedicated to those who find themselves in difficult life situations. This is true proof that sport can achieve more than just winning competitions, but also has the power to change lives for the better.

We are also pleased with the contribution of the fans who showed their charitable heart. They collected an extraordinary 7,484.01 euros, which will also be used for those who need help. This awareness that together we can be part of something bigger and more important fills us with pride.

Sincere thanks go to Tadej Pogačar, who showed with his generosity and inclusive approach how sports passion can transcend the limits of competition. We would also like to thank all those who, despite the heat, patiently lined up yesterday to become part of this unforgettable story. Together, we created a priceless mosaic of a beautiful event that will live in our hearts for a long time.
