«WE’RE ROOTING FOR EACH OTHER»
With the support of NatiVita, the national team of Belarus in beach football visited the Republican scientific and practical center of pediatric Oncology, Hematology and immunology. Before the start of the competition at the II European games, the athletes supported the guys who are fighting cancer and played football with them.
The result was a real match: goal, ball and two teams, in which athletes played on equal terms with the guys from the cancer center. The score is 5:4. But the excitement and sports mood won. Just an hour and it seemed that everyone forgot that they are in the Oncology center, and ahead of each of the guys their battle and their victories.
Igor Brishtel, captain of the National beach football team, shared his impressions:
Today, after we played football together, one boy told his mother that during the game he had more joy than when she bought him LEGO. I think that’s the most important thing we did today. Such events are necessary and important equally for children and for us — athletes. We’ll be rooting for each other!»
