Young volunteers from Chariots of Fire joined Special Olympics Bolivia to promote respect and inclusion of people with intellectual disabilities through public sessions on three Sundays in the city of La Paz.
The youth activating activity began on May 18 with training seminars and motivational seminars with the participation of athletes and concluded on July 14. The Sunday market in La Paz is a space provided by the Municipal Government of La Paz where they offer recreational, artistic, and information displays and where volunteers Chariots of Fire and Special Olympics ran information stands to promote public awareness of the benefits of the Special Olympics movement in our community.
Recreational activities were offered for children including Special Olympics athletes practicing football techniques with attendees. The events closed with a musical art show presented by Special Olympics athletes and volunteers. The public response was full of excitement and interest to be part of the movement for the purpose of changing our communities with clear actions.
It is certain that the main contribution in support of this construction are the same volunteers who through their strength, perseverance and sense of humanity come to promote genuine social change.
