The event will see the collaboration with two Italian Sports Committees, CIP and CONI, represented by the Presidents Luca Pancalli and Giovanni Malagò.
The event at “Stadio dei Marmi” (Roma) is scheduled for Tuesday, June 13, 2017 and will include 8 teams from 8 Italian regions. Each team will be composed of 20 players divided into youngsters (8-13 years old), male and female adults. Each team will also have one or more athletes with disabilities.
The initiative was conceived by the association “art4sport ONLUS” born following Bebe’s story (Beatrice Vio).
Bebe, after her success in fencing at the Paralympics of Rio 2016, is a well-known athlete.
The child with many passions including fencing, in 2008 was struck by a serious illness that caused the amputation of four limbs. From this experience has drawn art4sport lymph to “promote sports as physical and psychological therapy for children and teenagers with physical disabilities and improve the quality of life of children, teenaged boys and girls with amputations, carriers of the prosthetic limbs through the practice of sports” .
The underlying principle is to focus on their abilities rather than focus on disabilities and bring them, together with their families, to continue to face the world, with the others against the risk of an introflexion process.
This the theme of this year will be “emotions and colors”.
Drass is proud to be a sponsor for the second year.
