In its historic location, Verona Fairs, the 17th edition of Sport Expo has been inaugurated, the fair dedicated to under 14 children who will be able, in the company of their families, to dedicate an entire weekend to the practice of 50 different disciplines thanks to the involvement of federations and companies.
The event, which enjoys the patronage of the National CONI, is organized by the Municipality of Verona with the Bentegodi Foundation, the Motor Sciences Section of the Neuroscience, Biomedicine and Movement Department of the University of Verona, the Territorial School Office of Verona, Verona Fairs and FIPAV Verona.
Since its origins, in fact, the event has aimed to enhance the combination of sport and the younger generations, promoting physical activity as a lifestyle, accompanied by proper nutrition, and as a training tool to promulgate values such as team spirit, sacrifice, determination.
The protagonist of the three days will also be the Inclusive Sport themed area set up by Unimpresa Sport, SportdiPiù Magazine and the Don Mazzi Youth Centres, with the patronage of CIP Veneto and CONI Verona and with activities coordinated by the volunteers of Sport Senza Barriere A.S.D. and by the Veneto Paralympic Committee.
As part of the opening ceremony, the charity partnership was also launched between the Don Mazzi Youth Centers, a reality that has always worked on the prevention of youth discomfort, and the European Orienteering Championships, represented by the General Manager Gabriele Viale together with Mauro Gazzerro, FISO Veneto President, Diego Milani and Roberto Gelmini for the ASD Orient Express of Verona.
The important collaboration will lead, in view of the Sprint Championships in October, to the planning of a series of initiatives with a social and cultural background, soon to be launched. Along this path, the EOCs will also be able to count on the precious media partnership with SportdiPiù Magazine, the reference magazine for the sports community in Verona and beyond.
