I Charity Race for Inclusion “Vigo a Vela”
We are pleased to inform you that O Castro British School joins the I Charity Race for Inclusion “Vigo a Vela”, a pioneering initiative whose main objective is to raise awareness in society about the full inclusion of people with disabilities through sports.
The race will be held on July 20th in the Ría de Vigo. The competition will count with a maximum of 10 teams with professional boats experienced in other consolidated sailing competitions in the Galician circuit. The crew of each of the boats that will compete in this event will be mixed, since in addition to participating in the professional team, five people from a Galician entity that works with people with intellectual or physical disabilities will be integrated into this group. In addition, each boat will have two sponsors: a VIP person (businessman, footballer, actor / actress, singer …) and a national prestige journalist, who will be part of the crew.
In addition to seeking social inclusion through sports, the event will raise funds for the Charity Discamino, for the acquisition of new adapted bicycles, for the Unoentrecienmil Foundation, dedicated to the investigation of childhood leukemia and give financial support to Amedis Foundation, which works to improve learning and personal and social autonomy of people with intellectual disabilities.
Good luck to all the participants!
