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.
The sport school DREAMS
Together with the sports union Liga Deportiva Cantonal de Puebloviejo and the town hall, we founded the sports school DREAMS. Today, 400 children and youths between the age of 4 and 16 practice every day, under the supervision of qualified football and basketball 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 DREAMS 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.”
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.
Bouldering – a climbing sport that also challenges the muscles of the mind
Bouldering encourages flexibility as well as coordination, because technique, strength and endurance are just as important as self-control and overcoming the fear of falling. SanLucar Germany supported the Kinder & Jugend ARCHE Karlsruhe with installing their indoor climbing wall and financed the purchase of the safety mats with a donation of 3,000 €. The Arche in Karlsruhe helps children in emotional and financial need to have more equal opportunities and offers them meaningful leisure activities.
