SPORTS FOR ALL : Every Child Has the Right to Play – 2018 – Bangalore
March 28 @ 8:00 am - 5:00 pm
In order to provide a platform for under privileged children to not only play but also to showcase talent during the Inter NGO Futsal Tournament event ,The Rejuvenators organizes an Annual Tournament for NGO’s every year.
As part of the Annual event for 2018, ” Sports for All – Every Child has the Right to Play!! ” , 32 NGOs were invited to participate across 2 locations – Mumbai & Bangalore. A total of 232 kids participated in the event with huge enthusiasm & energy.
24th Feb 2018 was a memorable day for The Rejuvenators as we hosted our first “Sports for All – Every Child has the right to play” event at Bangalore.
It was a day of fun & frolic, joy and entertainment and most importantly competitive and life changing for many kids as they hope for a brighter future.
The highlight of the day was the demonstration match from the visually challenged Football Teams from Snehadeep. It was great privilege to have them participate in the tournament. We witnessed an inspiring story that talks about how we must all value the things we have & channelize them towards positive goals rather than brood over what we don’t have. It is easier said than done but it was proved by the Senhadeep teams that its truly possible. The way they played can outshine the best of us. The fighting spirit & competitiveness among them was mind blowing. Wont you agree if i say, God always replaces another strength while giving you a flaw, it’s up to u to look for it within yourself.
It was a completely satisfying event with 112 participants, another 70 people to cheer and support, energized & engaged volunteers, Music, dance, breakfast, lunch & snacks, presence of Eric Benny, leading sports business owner & an inspiring speech by our esteemed Chief Guest Gopinath.K, International Parasports Badminton & Tennis champion and a great level of sporting spirit and competition by the participants made this event a truly inspiring for us.
