Massive presentation in the Sant Rafael Courts of the Alcantara Family Foundation.
The Alcantara family has been the centerpiece of a sporting and social event of great scope and significance for children and youth in the Raval district of Barcelona. Rafinha, Thiago together with his wife, Júlia Vigas, and the soccer players’ parents, Mazinho and Valeria have launched the Alcantara Family Foundation and its action program in favor of 70 children from the Associació Esportiva Ciutat Vella from next academic year onwards.
The strength and values of the family have been very present in an event where the beneficiaries of the Alcantara Team program, have enjoyed not only the company and personal support of the Alcantara family, but have also been able to play for a while with Thiago and Rafinha and feel the family’s affection and the desire of the Foundation to help them improve their school, social, family and sports expectations.
The program will provide pedagogical resources so that children learn to manage life situations such as stress, emotions and conflicts and, above all, can make their own decisions, aware of the individual and group-wide consequences. Skills they will gain while training and having fun with exercises, activities, and games.
The event held in the Sant Rafael Courts, next to the Rambla of Raval in the Ciutat Vella District, also attracted celebrities, families, and media who took good note of this new social focus of the Alcantara. Representative of Barcelona’s City Council, Santi Ibarra, Councillor of the District of Raval, and Pere Vila, Territorial Representative of Sports of Barcelona, on behalf of the Secretary-General of Sport of the Generalitat, concluded the act which has been multitudinous, sportive and, above all, emotional because of the enormous affection and connection with children, youth and neighbors of the neighborhood who also joined the great party of the Alcantara Family Foundation in an unforgettable afternoon.
