The president of C.B. Gran Canaria, Enrique Moreno, and the president of the organization #Up2U Project, Reyes Martel, signed the agreement for this social initiative.
C.B. Gran Canaria will start several activities to teach the moral values and techniques of basketball to underage children in distress and with judicial measures from the organization #Up2U Project.
These practices embrace the corporate social responsability from Euroleague Basketball called ‘One Team’, which goal is to integrate groups and communities to the society.
The One Team ambassador will be Xavi Rabaseda. The small forward from Herbalife Gran Canaria will teach the children about the importance of basketball in their education and to implement it into the society.
REYES MARTEL, PRESIDENT OF #UP2U PROJECT
“It’s a great joy to continue working with a great sports company as Herbalife Gran Canaria. With a little help from everyone, these children with judicial measures can receive great advices to take their own path in the future”.
“Basketball is important to let them learn the respect for the rules, discipline, fellowship and behavior in the wins or losses”.
ENRIQUE MORENO, PRESIDENT OF C.B. GRAN CANARIA
“We are more than a basketball Club because we work for the small children, we already have 1.200 players in our youth categories”.
“We are an open Club for all these children marginalised or risk of exclusion, because they also have the right to enjoy with this amazing sport”.
