Envera celebrates its VII Solidarity Golf Tournament in Madrid and Canary Islands

Madrid | December 12, 2016


For the seventh consecutive year, Envera has organized a new edition of the Solidarity Golf Tournament, an event that unites sport and solidarity, and which this year took place in two of the Organization's headquarters: Madrid and the Canary Islands. Although at first it was also intended to be held in Malaga, the unfavorable weather forecast forced the event to be suspended.

Esperanza Aguirre, councilwoman of the Madrid City Council, kicked off the Tournament at the Campo de La Moraleja in Madrid, where a reception was held after the game with the announcers of Radio Terrícola, Envera's inclusive radio station, and former basketball player Fernando Romay.

The kick-off ceremony at the Cortijo Club de Campo in Las Palmas de Gran Canaria was attended by well-known Canary Islands sports stars: former soccer player Ángel Valerón, golfer Octavio Rodríguez, tennis player Magüi Serna and sailors Patricia Guerra and Fernando León.

The President of Envera, José Antonio Quintero, presented the trophies to the champions of the two competitions and reminded them of Envera's commitment to sport, especially "inclusive sport, which breaks down barriers and achieves goals that seem unattainable".

At the end of the matches and as is tradition, a raffle was held with prizes donated by the Tournament sponsors, such as tickets provided by Iberia, AirNostrum or Iberia Express; Kiabi t-shirts with the slogan "color life"; or gastronomic products.

Envera's President thanks participants and sponsors for their collaboration.

Envera belongs to the international movement Special Olympics and for 25 years has been promoting the practice of sport among people with and without disabilities as a means of self-improvement, transmission of values and social inclusion. Envera is committed to an inclusive sport, where each person has a value to contribute.

The Envera Solidarity Golf Tournament aims to ensure that no child without resources has to wait to receive assistance in Early Intervention, to ensure the welfare of severely affected adults with disabilities and to improve the Special Employment Centers where Envera offers protected and stable work to more than half a thousand people with disabilities.

Thanks to all the participants and, especially, to all the sponsors for helping us to continue working to improve the quality of life and equal opportunities for people with intellectual disabilities.
