On Wednesday, September 17th, 2014 at the Casa Llotja de Mar in Barcelona, Marc and Pau officially introduced the Gasol Foundation at the Dinar Cambra for the Cambra de Comerç de Barcelona (Barcelona’s Chamber of Commerce).
The Gasol Foundation, founded in Los Angeles more than a year ago and recently constituted in Spain, has the mission of promoting healthy habits among kids and youth, highlighting a focus on balanced nutrition and physical education (especially for those at high risk for social exclusion), so that they will have increased chances and opportunities in life.
During the Dinar Cambra, Marc Gasol and Pau Gasol introduced the foundation’s goals to the audience, including many political and business related personalities. The brothers spoke about their philanthropic experience in the United States, about the work they do with different organizations and hospitals, and about the personal significance of launching their own foundation.

During the past few years, the percentage of kids at risk of social exclusion has grown substantially, and this has had a big impact on childhood nutritional problems.
Pau and Marc highlighted how important our society’s commitment and involvement will be in order to work on finding solutions to this problem nowadays.
