This weekend the LloretTrail returns. On April 11, Lloret de Mar will host the race organized by La Sansi in which, once again, the social commitment of the entity will be evident. This year, the participants of the 2nd LloretTrail who wish, can contribute their grain of sand through the registration form for the race by making a voluntary donation to INSERsport, a social and employment project for young people at risk of social exclusion. Since 2017, INSERsport, carried out by the Social Area of the Union of Sports Federations of Catalonia, has helped more than 500 young people from all over Catalonia to train in the federal field and gain a first experience in the world of work. If you have not yet registered, you are in time to do so and add your grain of sand by collaborating with INSERsport and sharing this initiative through your social networks so that the call for solidarity goes further.
Help us to achieve the solidarity challenge. On June 8, GlobalGiving, a non-profit platform connecting projects and donors from around the world, launched the Accelerator 2020 fundraising campaign.
The training courses of the INSERsport project include theory, but above all practice. In this way, the young people who participate have the opportunity to be in direct contact with the competitions of the different federations that are part of the program, and so did the last weekend of the month, April.
A group of six boys and girls from the course of the Catalan Sports Federation of Cerebral Palsy formed part of the staff, as volunteers, of the third International Adaptive Swimming Trophy – Gran Premio Diputació de Barcelona, where people with physical disabilities competed.
We believe in sport as a powerful tool for social inclusion. The UFEC INSERsport program allows young people at risk of social exclusion to access education and their first employment contract linked to sport.
Today we have explained it to the “Esports Cope” program. Many thanks to the journalists Joan Batllori and David Espinar for their dedication.
