Michael Schumacher's family announce "Keep Fighting Initiative"

The family of Michael Schumacher have announced they are launching "Keep Fighting Initiative".

The idea behind it is to encourage the motive to never give up, just as Michael did throughout his career. The German was injured during a skiing trip in 2013, sustaining serious head injuries.

Sabine Kehm, Schumacher's manager, said: "This is a first step of a movement which we hope can do good in the future." 


"The intention of the Keep Fighting Initiative is to spread the belief that giving up is not an option, a message that is valid not only in motor racing."

The organisation is a non-profitable one, with it's intended message to be based solely on inspiring people around the world. 

Kehm also added that there would be no follow-up on Schumacher's current condition.

“Michael’s health is not a public issue, and so we will continue to make no comment in that regard," she continued. "This is also because we have to protect his intimate sphere. Legally seen and in the longer term, every statement related to his health would diminish the extent of his intimate sphere.

“We are aware that this may be difficult for some people to understand but we do this with full commitment to Michael’s guidelines and can only thank people for their understanding.
