We are excited to share that the Gasol Foundation has been awarded the prestigious new Spanish award, Laureus España MARCA Sport for Good. We are honored to be part of the Laureus Sport for Good global network, which, since its inception, has helped to improve the lives of over six million young people and currently supports over 250 community programs in more than 50 countries. The Laureus Spain MARCA Sport for Good Honour is the fruit of an alliance between Laureus Sport for Good and MARCA, which looks to continue Nelson Mandela’s legacy. In the inaugural Laureus Awards in 2000, President Mandela, the first Patron of Laureus, said: “Sport has the power to change the world” and the award recognizes those athletes who not only have enjoyed great success during their sporting careers, but who have also spent their time helping those less fortunate.”
Gasol Foundation would like to thank Laureus Sport for Good for this tremendous honor. We dedicate this award to all of you – our donors, partners, and supporters – who have been devoted to our mission to eradicate childhood obesity. With your support, we will continue to build a world where children and families are empowered with the healthy habits, community support and global innovation required to eradicate childhood obesity.
