Inviting people, raising funds
An invitation and an offer was made. The PDF was sent around widely and spontaneously. The offer – buy a share in the sculpture and get you name on the sculpture plaque. But hurry up, you have to make up your mind before the reception for Professor Ljungqvist's 80th birthday in a month's time. The time span was very short but we managed to get important support from The Chinese Sports Ministry, The Finnish Sports Ministry, the World Champion and Olympic Gold Medalist Carolina Klüft, members of the Ljungqvist family and other friends and supporters.
