X Torneo Sindrome de Down
Reflecting its strong commitment to non-profit social associations, Grespania collaborated with the Down Syndrome Foundation as a sponsor of the charity event that took place on 12th November at the Club de Campo del Mediterráneo in Borriol (Castellón).
Just as in previous years, the aim of this tournament was to raise funds for the ongoing running and improvement of psycho-educational services that the Foundation offers to people with Down syndrome and/or intellectual disabilities in the province of Castellón who attend its centre.
Over the course of the morning on Sunday, participants enjoyed a day that combined sports and goodwill by supporting this charitable sports event, which is already an important date in the calendar of tournaments held in the province.
Rosa Prades, president of the Down Syndrome Foundation of Castellón, highlighted the strong involvement of the companies sponsoring the tournament: "this initiative is one of the most important projects organized by the Foundation. It’s thanks to the wonderful collaboration with the sponsoring companies that year-after-year we can achieve our goal of raising funds to continue working to improve the quality of life of people with Down syndrome and/or intellectual disability." Prades went on to say that "We are very proud to be able to count on the collaboration of some of the foremost companies in our province, some of which have been with us ever since the beginning ten years ago, and others that have come on board more recently".
As this year’s tournament came to a close, the Down Syndrome Foundation of Castellón had already started work on next year's tournament. For the 2018 tournament, the Foundation hopes to once again count on support from the Club de Campo del Mediterráneo, the sponsor companies, and the participation of the club members.
