VIRTUS CHARITY

Bologna, 20th december –

ASSISLA & VIRTUS

 

 

Today, at Casa Virtus Alfasigma, a press conference was held to present the project “Adopt a family”, which Virtus Segafredo has decided to carry out in support of AssiSLA Onlus in the difficult fight against Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis.

As described by the President of AssiSLA, Dr. Filippo Martone: “Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis is a rare disease today incurable, affecting between 80 and 100 people per million inhabitants. ALS generates conditions of extreme difficulty, a family nucleus that is affected is subjected to a severe test. Sometimes it is brought to its knees. AssiSLA onlus, through the program “Adopt a Family”, asks to the great realities of the economic fabric of Emilia-Romagna to help the families that are going through the most difficult conditions through a monthly economic support. This program today takes its first step thanks to the sensitivity shown by a club, Virtus Pallacanestro, which makes of its heart a daily reason, to which AssiSLA is immensely grateful. Not only for the gesture, of immediate, important and tangible generosity, but for the great example that, we are sure, will soon be followed by many other realities”.

AssiSLA Onlus deals with the assistance of people affected by ALS and their families, through interventions directly addressed to them and training and awareness activities. With its monthly contribution Virtus Segafredo Bologna will support just one of these, in the complex daily management of the disease.

“We are proud – says the CEO of Virtus Pallacanestro, Luca Baraldi – to support the important social project of AssiSLA and to be able to give concrete help to those who, every day, are forced to live with this situation. Virtus wants to be the first sports club, in the territory, to adopt a sick person and to be an example for other clubs or companies, who want to commit themselves and help these realities”.

The presentation was also attended by Dr. Fabrizio Salvi, scientific director of the ALS, myasthenia and amyloidosis program at the IRCCS of Neuroscience in Bologna: “I deal every day with people affected by amyotrophic lateral sclerosis in Bologna and its province. As scientific responsible of AssiSLA Onlus, through my daily experience and the collaboration that I normally have with the social welfare system, I live firsthand the real and sometimes terrible difficulties that families have to face when a loved one is affected by this merciless condition. I am excited about this possibility that through sensitive realities such as Virtus Basketball we can make available to the neediest families. In a context however controlled and within a condition of clear utility”.

RICE AGAINST HUNGER

Bologna, 1st October –

 

 

On Thursday, October 1, the Virtus Pallacanestro Bologna Under 18 team took to the court to play a special game: alongside the Rise Against Hunger association, the young Bianconeri went to Castel Maggiore to the association’s warehouse where they packed 6,000 meals that will be shipped to Zimbabwe. An afternoon of “work” on the part of the young bianconeri that will allow 25 children to go to school for an entire year.

Rise Against Hunger, an international organization founded in 1998, continues its commitment to the fight against hunger in the world in line with the Sustainable Development Goals of the UN 2030 Agenda.

A concrete commitment that involves supporters all over the world, who have contributed to the production of thousands of meals destined to feed children and families in need, while supporting schooling programs. A commitment that not only responds to an emergency but lays the foundations for long-term social change.
