The campaign "Sport for Life" started, a social responsibility campaign initiated by Gabriela Szabo, through the association with the same name and organized by the communication agency Pastel Age.
The campaign was created at the initiative of Gabriele Szabo, who had the opportunity to notice the drastic reduction of the natural selection base for performance athletes, caused by the lack of interest in sports, by the defective development of children generated by the lack of physical movement and by the inadequate nutrition.
Sedentarism is, however, an extended problem, with powerful implications not only on the physical health of the people, but also on the mental health, the tonus, the efficiency in the work.
The human body is created for movement and, in the absence of it, normal physiological processes are disturbed, sometimes up to total disorder.
The first action of the campaign is the Tour to promote sport in schools. The tour is aimed at children in grades I - IV, between the ages of 7 and 12 years.
It takes place at the end of May, in 5 Bucharest schools. Children participate in competitions and sports games, on the principle of a championship between classes. There are competitions for basketball and badminton, chos, speed races, but also stafets, running in bags and other types of games.
There will also be dance and drawing workshops. The tour also includes famous athletes: Andreea Raducanu, Otilia Badeascu, Elisabeta Lipa, Diana Oprea, Monica Iagar, Claudia Isaila, Camelia Potec. In each school, the events take place between 9 and 14 hours.
On the first day of the Sport Promotion Tour in schools, over 150 children trained with Gabriela Szabo, Elisabeta Lipa, Diana Oprea, Claudia Isaila, Eugen Craciun and Mihai Turcan.
"The children were extremely excited," Gabriela Szabo said after the event. "They didn't stop for a moment, they cried, they made a gallery with each other, they were real athletes. We would love to do such an event every day, if it could," concluded sports.
The Sport Promotion Tour in Schools will continue in the following days with schools 177, 45, 12 and 162. At school 177 will be present, along with Gabriela Szabo, Laura Badea and Monica Iagar. The fire day of the tour will be Friday, May 25, when the 500 children of the 45th school are waiting for Diana Oprea and Andreea Raducan.
The caravan will be completed with the Arenele de Joaca event, organized on June 2-3, in Herastrau Park, at the Big Wheel.
