The trainers of adaptive surfing addressed to people with movement disorders, specialists in Parkinson’s disease and the representatives of the local Parkinson association Fuerte Es la Vida Parkinson No Limits got together with Parkinon’s patients to carry out the Open Day organized by the FuerteTribu association, inside the first transnational meeting S4Parkinson.
It was an exciting day fully spent on the beach, in an open space. The persons with movement disorders, parkinson’s patients and volunteers attended several activities such as SURFING, PSYCHOMOTRICITY, QI GONG. It was a real pleasure to see our ideas becoming real.
We remind that together with project partners of the Erasmus+ sport project »Sea, Sail and Surf for Parkinson» we want to share good practices and knowledge about the role of sea sports, especially sail and surf, in the rehabilitation of people affected by Parkinson disease. We want to create multilevel synergies and networks between sea sport clubs and associations dealing with PD patients. Its overall objective is to encourage social inclusion and equal opportunities in sport.
After having dealt with several difficulties during traveling, a lot of Covid restrictions and caution measures to respect during organizing and coordinating this three days meeting, We are happy to declare that WE DID IT!
We bring our sincere congratulations to our spanish partner Fuerte Tribu for their hard work, great organization, amazing hospitality and atmosphere we found in Fuerteventura. Furthermore, we thank all our partners for their active involvement and interest in carrying out this project!
This is not the end, but only the beginning!
