Frankfurt / Main (dpa) - racing driver Mick Schumacher has been honored at the Sport PressBall in Frankfurt as an "athlete with a heart".
The 20-year-old son of Formula 1 legend Michael Schumacher came to the Alte Oper on Saturday with his mother Corinna and received the award for his social commitment. "Mick touches the people," acknowledged Ball boss Jörg Müller the Formula 2 driver.
Schumacher actively supports the social family organization "Keep fighting", continuing the charitable work of his father, who died in a skiing accident in 2013 in the areas of culture, education, science, public health and motivation. This includes the charity football match "Champions for charity". "Over the past two years, we have raised around 200,000 euros with both foundations," Schumacher reported.
