Sport, healthy habits, inclusion and solidarity
From the outset, Kosta Trail has had charitable aims. Thanks to all the participants the organisation will donate part of the money raised through this year’s 14th edition sign-ups, to the programmes which Foundation GaituzSport Fundazioa undertakes to foster Physical Activity and Sport among the disABLED and ABLE-bodied in equal conditions.
GaituzSport is a platform which generates Community, endowing it with the necessary human and material resources, supports and adaptations required so people can do physical activities according to their needs; and always from an inclusive perspective that respects diversity.
An advanced society should ensure the inclusion of all collectives and sport is a great integration channel. Our hallmark is ‘Making Social’ for the inclusive healthy development of society, taking into consideration: social, sporting, health and educational aspects.
The disABLED taking part in GaituzSport programmes improve their quality of life, physical and mental health, not to mention their self-esteem, personal autonomy and social integration.
The 2019 edition of Kosta Trail is divided into 3 modalities: Mountain Half Marathon (21 km), Mountain Hike (20 km) and Family Hike (10 km) so people of all ages, conditions and requirements can take part.
In addition, Team One Diabetes Challenge (www.team-one.es) of the ‘Spanish Association for Sport with Diabetes’ will again be collaborating. They will set up measuring and insulin posts at the different provisioning points so all diabetic runners can safely take part. Kosta Trail will meet its aim of fostering sport, inclusion and solidarity, for yet another year.
THANKS to Forum Sport, Salomon and Laboral Kutxa for their enormous work and awareness in these 14 editions of Kosta Trail, likewise for choosing Foundation GaituzSport Fundazioa as this year’s beneficiary, going one step further in fostering and supporting inclusion via sport.
