He tries to give them hope and faith in a possible cure.In February 1998, Urban Golob decided to cross the Slovene Alps in winter, from the Tolmino plain in the west to Maribor in the east. An expedition lasting 13 days which, besides its sports value, had a highly humanitarian and practical significance as it helped to increase the donations to the fund for families with children suffering with cancer.
