FRONDIS - Care for people with dementia

The FRONDIS association offers a care programme for people with dementia in the Engadin.

The word "FRONDIS" comes from the Greek "frondiso" and means to care. The association wants to serve society and show solidarity with those affected and their relatives.

The St. Moritz Golf Club is the home club on Kulm Golf. Founded in 2002, the club now has around 300 members.
Golfers discovered Kulmpark 125 years ago as a golf landscape that rises far above the small norms of the everyday and is very popular.

For several years now, we have sponsored golf tournaments. This year, it takes place on 6 September 2023.
Open Doors
Architecture for all

Every year at the end of June, Bergell and Engadin open their doors for a weekend.   Everyone is then invited to take a look behind the façades of outstanding buildings from a wide variety of eras and to rediscover countless places.

Inside the buildings, architects and experts provide first-hand information on the background to the buildings. The event is organised by the association Open Doors Engadin – Architektur für alle that helps to share knowledge with the general public about architecture and its importance in the development of our living space.

Lorena Cadalbert
Mountain biker

Lorena rides for Team Fehr Velos in the U23 category. After two weeks of training on Cran Canaria with 50 hours of training and 20,000 metres of climbing, her motivation for the new season is high. She is aiming for a top 5 result in the Swiss Bike Cup, wants to gain more World Cup experience and, above all, wants to keep riding fun.

Lorena’s last name is no coincidence! We get to support a family member here (niece!).
Martina Faggi

Martina says of herself "Athletics are my life". After a difficult 2023, characterised by injuries, Martina's focus in 2024 is on completing pain-free competitions. Her other goals are to finish in the top 5 in the long jump at the Swiss Championships. To break the 6 metre mark in the long jump, which is the World Championships limit, and to make a successful start in the new 400 metre discipline.

Martina is also part of our family (another niece!) and we’re delighted to be able to support her.
Team Follador

The vision of the Engadin Follador bob team is clear: the 2026 Olympic Games!
EHC St. Moritz

Established in 1918, EHC St. Moritz is one of the oldest ice hockey clubs in the country that still plays in the official Swiss championship.

The club faces great challenges, both financially and in terms of its infrastructure. Coping with the ever-growing demands of the Swiss Ice Hockey Federation is not a sprint, but a marathon.
FC Celerina football camp

Since its inception, the Celerina football camp has been a permanent fixture in Engadin’s summer holiday programme, attracting children and young people from all over the valley and beyond.

Around 120 participants, 22 trainers and just as many helpers are involved in the camp.
