WDSD 2019 “Leave no one behind!” – Spain

21 March is a global awareness day which has been officially observed by the United Nations since 2012. The motto of this year’s event is: Leave no one behind!
EDSA has asked their members to show people with Down syndrome taking part in activities together with others. Starting on 1 March, we show 21 examples from across Europe to make it clear that no one should be left behind!

„Erix is a „Lynx“ more. Since 2017, this player of the rugby children‘s team of the VRAC club of Valladolid has become a great example of inclusive sport. His happiness and joy when he takes the ball is the same as his teammates. Because our goal is ‘Don’t leave anyone behind“

“Erix es un “Lince” más. Desde 2017, este jugador del equipo infantil de rugby del club VRAC de Valladolid se ha convertido en un gran ejemplo de deporte inclusivo.
