Carrying out raffles with a social purpose, is a practice that has been carried out in recent years, where we have seen from people who have raffled their houses, to cars or prizes of great value. One of the issues that drive this phenomenon is the product of immediate liquidity needs resulting from high-cost illnesses, debts or simply a different way of getting money.
And it is precisely this option that the athlete took, Hernan Garcia, who has represented Chile in various golf tournaments in Europe and the United States, but today, as a result of ulcerative colitis, which is a complex and disabling intestinal disease, the golfer had to undergo different high-value treatments, for which he must face a large debt in the health center that cannot pay for.
It is for this reason that the elite athlete, who was born without his right hand due to a congenital malformation, motivated by his friends, is holding a raffle with two cars and various prizes.
“The debts that are produced by this type of diseases are enormous, where no pocket can manage to bear the high costs. This is why we launched a great raffle, which has had a lot of relevance in the people for its prizes. In fact, the sale of tickets, which have a value of $ 10,000 each, is being carried out in www.hernangarcia.cl, highlighting that they can win a semi-new Fiat 500 Pop 2021 or a semi-new Mini Cooper S Classic 2021 from UNIK Cars ” says Hernán Garcia, Professional Golfer.
Ulcerative colitis is a chronic inflammatory bowel disease in which the large intestine (colon) becomes inflamed and ulcerated (leaks or erodes) causing outbreaks or attacks of bloody diarrhea, abdominal cramps and fever. The long-term risk of colon cancer is higher compared to people who do not have ulcerative colitis.
