Success for Sport&Environment at Predosa


After less than two years, it has already become a fixed event for the youth of Pedrosa.  Last Thursday, more than 150 Pedrosa schoolchildren invaded the sports centre of this town in the province of Alessandria for the second edition of Sport&Ambiente, the event strongly supported by Riccoboni Holding with the aim of combining a passion for sport and the outdoors with respect for the environment and environmental education. Enrico Bosi was there to bring the greetings of the company and to open the event together with the mayor of Predosa, Giancarlo Rapetti.

The children, guided by sports professionals in different disciplines (football, rugby, athletics and tennis), had the opportunity of trying out different sports, learning their basic rules and their potential as a form of socialization. The objective is that of communicating the importance of physical activity for children, as it ensures the proper development of the skeleton and muscular system, regulates metabolism and at the same time promotes socialization and integration. The event had an interesting format, with students running in a rotation of about 20 minutes. The last two stations were dedicated to environmental education. Here the children had a go at "hunt the suspect", an environmental education activity in which they had to investigate and find out which kinds of waste were involved in waste sorting mistakes.

The day ended with snacks and a nice Riccoboni gadget for all the participants. “Sport&Environment is a very important event for our company, and we will be happy to organize it again at the end of this school year and at the beginning of the next - said Angelo Riccoboni-. It is an initiative that combines in the best way outdoor sporting activity, necessary for youth, with environmental education, a value we strongly believe in because we are convinced that today's youth must develop the green awareness that will allow them to make the right choices in the future. I would like to thank the municipal administration and the Predosa Multisport Centre for once more supporting this initiative, which is becoming a pleasant tradition in our area”. See you all in October, with another beautiful day dedicated to Sport&Environment!
