Parents for Sports hosts International Paralympic athlete.

Marcio Fernandes who represented Cabo Verde in London 2012 participated in several games with the Children. He spent a full afternoon with local families.

This was part of a wider initiative to promote positive and diverse role models who achieve great recognition despite physical challenges. Parents for Sports set a full day of activities as a way to support Marcio’s current fundraising for ┬ánew running blades.

During the afternoon there were performances from local children, food from different parts of the world, face painting and raffles. Parents for Sports, local families and local children were proud to receive Marcio.
