Athletic Club Fundazioa received the support of the entity in the last training session prior to the LaLiga Final Phase dispute
Yesterday, Athletic Club Fundazioa, our Genuine team, received a very special visit before their usual Tuesday training began. Nora Sarasola and Koldo Bilbao, on behalf of the BBK Foundation; accompanied by Aitor Elizegi, member of the Management Committee and former president of Athletic Club; Rafael Alkorta, Athletic’s director of sport, and Andoni Goikoetxea, ambassador of Fundazioa and red-and-white legend, wanted to support Athletic Genuine before the dispute of the final phase of LaLiga that takes place this weekend in Lezama.
The footballers received encouragement and congratulations and, above all, a clear and unequivocal message: enjoy the game and the final phase to the fullest. The BBK Foundation is, for yet another year, the main sponsor of a team made up of 45 male and female players with a minimum disability of 33%.
As Nora Sarasola has pointed out: “At BBK we firmly believe that sport makes us better. Sport contributes to the development of people, promotes equal opportunities, fosters physical and mental well-being, promotes passion and learning, and is also a social link. In short, sport makes us better people and sport makes Bizkaia a better place. For this reason, at BBK we promote initiatives that favor the practice of healthy and inclusive sports, at all ages, both at the level of emotional and physical skills”.
