Organised by AMPANS and Manresa City Council, the second edition adds the collaboration of UManresa-FUB, Escola Montserrat and CRTEA, with the support of CaixaBank.

The AMPANS Foundation, together with Manresa City Council, is organising the second edition of the adapted race, aimed at all children and young people with functional diversity.

Anyone who wants to can enjoy a morning of leisure, sport and activities open to the public on Saturday 20 May, from 10am to 1pm.

On this occasion, AMPANS works together with the educational community of the territory. La Cursa has the collaboration of Marketing and Advertising students from the Montserrat School in Sant Vicent de Castellet, who have worked on the creation of this year’s slogan “Attitude without limits, endless fun”. The group of students supports the foundation in the organisation and dissemination, sharing values and message. They have also been the driving force behind finding ambassadors for the race, inviting the actor and monologist Marc Buxaderas, and the athlete of Syrian origin, Adnan Almousa, who will be at the race on Saturday, and will take part in the ceremony and the presentation of medals to the participants.

In addition, this race will have the active involvement of UManresa-FUB: the FUB4 space will be the stage, and the UEducació community will be part of the activities offered.

The TEA Resource Centre and “La Caixa” Foundation will also make it possible, for the second consecutive year. CRTEA will participate in the event, while ‘La Caixa’ Foundation supports it, as an entity deeply rooted and committed to the social inclusion of groups in vulnerable situations.

Last year, in its first edition, more than 60 children and young people participated in the first Manresa Adapted Race. This year, an even greater participation is expected; and the aim is to open the activity to all children in the city, offering sensory activities and inclusive games beyond the central event that will be the adapted race.
