Always on the move
Nelson Mandela once said: “Sport has the power to change the world”. This much is for sure: sport strengthens one’s immune system, lifts one’s spirits and prevents obesity. Those are enough incentives to get people moving with our projects.
Those who have a goal in mind are already halfway to victory
Together with the sports union Liga Deportiva Cantonal de Puebloviejo and the town hall, we founded the sports school d.r.e.a.m.s. Today, 300 children and youths between the ages of four and 16 practice every day, under the supervision of qualified football, basketball, judo and boxing trainers. They learn to build team spirit, how to lead a healthy lifestyle and a lot about nutrition. The sports school can be attended free of charge by kids from the surrounding municipalities.
(Darwin, 18. Puebloviejo, Ecuador) “My friends call me Borola. I used to take drugs and to finance them, I stole and gambled. But after the birth of my daughter I changed my life radically. Fortunately, I came across the sports school d.r.e.a.m.s. The sport and the team helped me on my way out of drugs. With my story I want to prevent the children of the sports school from making the same mistakes as I did. Because sport is the best drug.”
Together with regional sports unions and the Ministry of Sports we brought to life the running and charity event RUN4d.r.e.a.m.s. It’s aimed at employees and local residents. The proceeds go to the different local projects. And it’s running smoothly!
Pferde Stärken/Kinder Stärken Association
Whether you go for a ride on Sippin Last Glo, the sensitive one, the patient Obelix or one of the other therapy horses – they have one thing in common: they help children with limitations to improve by movements and contact with the horses. Every year, SanLucar Austria organises a Charity Golf Tournament. Since 2009, 833.000€ in donations have been collected at this event and have been used to support the therapy centre.
