Un Copil, O Speranta (A child, a hope) Foundation together with Boarder’s Shop met on Saturday, January 9, 2016 at Arena Platos, Paltinis with a common goal: to make children happy, encouraging them to try snowboarding for the first time. The Fresh Meat team joined us, and Toni from Arena Platos was the host.
The beginning of the day was promising with heavy snow. The construction of the park was almost a game, finished on time, at 11:00 the first participants started appearing. The children accompanied by their parents stormed Burton Riglet Park, so the small hills and counter-slopes were not the only “obstacles” on the circuit. Everything became a fun race, where smiling was the order of the day.
Autism and Down syndrome are not options we can choose at birth. Although it may seem an exaggerated optimism, everything was fun. It was an action that made us happy, as well as the children. The little ones got most excited with every moment 🙂
We hope they’ve spent some quality time with us.
