Menarini and Wheelchair Sport Firenze: supporting physically challenged athletes. Sport as an enjoyable source of education and individual growth.
Since 2011 we cooperate with the “Wheelchair Sport Firenze” sports association
made up of volunteers from all over the Tuscan region
who organise dance and basketball courses especially
devised for physically challenged children and young
adults, who, want to do sport and have fun.
The “Volpi Rosse Menarini” is a team of young wheelchair
basketball players who, despite their very young age
have already shown great seriousness, sporting spirit
and commitment in rising to the challenge, both during
training and competitions.
The “Wheelchair Dance Menarini” team, on the other
hand, is a mixed team of dancers who train and perform
integrated,choreographic and wheelchair dance
Even if these young sportsmen and women have already
shown how to overcome any difficulties caused by their
disabilities with enthusiasm and imagination, they may
now count on a new friend by their side, willing to help
them develop their social skills, support their commitment
and the boost their strength and team work .... and,
above all, have fun!
