For the second year in a row, Gasol Foundation, along with Casal dels Infants, have made possible the l’Esport Suma Program in the center of Badalona, Barcelona. Over the course of this year’s edition, children learned about healthy lifestyle habits through the practice of different sports, nutrition workshops and outings, alongside their family members. What better way to finish off this amazing year than with a celebration both organized for and by all of the participants? And of course, every party needs a special guest… can you guess who we invited?
A FULL YEAR OF LEARNING NEW HEALTHY HABITS
Pau Gasol did not want to miss out on the chance to enjoy an evening with the children and their families, so that they could share with him everything they had done during the program- including the sports and games they had played, the “Fairplay” prize for the Badalona Soccer League and the recipes they had learned to make with their families. Without a doubt, it was a very special moment for both our special guest and the participants!
During the celebration, we found that one of the words which we heard most often was “healthy.” It’s great to see that the importance of sports and eating healthy sticks with the girls and boys and their families who participate in L’Esport Suma Program. Mission accomplished!
Pau further reinforced this message to everyone, reminding them to “Eat a healthy and balanced diet, don’t try to get your energy from canned beverages, and if you have a dream, don’t give up and work hard to achieve it. Mom’s, dad’s, remember that you are the best example for your children. Act and eat the way you would like your children to do so.”
And of course, we ended by taking a group photo, giving out diplomas and healthy prizes, as well as a tasting of meals prepared by the children, mom’s and dad’s. Awards were given out for the tastiest, best presented, most original and healthiest meals. Without a doubt, this unforgettable evening was a great way to close a full year of learning new healthy habits!
