The “Solidary Birthday” Movement, from Associação Salvador, challenges birthday boys and girls to walk the kilometers corresponding to their age, in two or more days, with the purpose of supporting a specific disabled person.
At the same time as they walk the kilometers, birthday boys and girls should share with their network of contacts and in their social media that they are participating in this initiative, and as such, ask that for each kilometer they complete a donation is made, which will be channeled to help the cause supported at that time.
To cope with the increase in requests for help, Associação Salvador challenges the Portuguese to make their birthday an even more special event. In a simple way, to celebrate this day in a healthy and solidary way, helping those who need it most.
The Solidarity Birthday Movement has already changed many lives, like Luís’.
Let’s support Luís!
Luís is a twenty-two year old young man who has Perthes Disease, which resulted in the rupture of his femoral head when he was only two years old.
This health problem has conditioned all his mobility, however, Luís did not give up and hold himself to his passion that moves him every day – sports.
At the moment he plays basketball, having already practiced other sports, such as swimming. His ambition is to one day participate in an international competition or even make the national team.
However, the chair he uses to play is totally obsolete and completely unadjusted to his physiognomy and needs, and he needs a new equipment, something that has a very high cost.
Neither Luís nor his family can afford this new wheelchair, so we need you to make sure that this young man can achieve his dreams.
Every month, a different person will be supported.
Join this great cause, challenge yourself, enjoy a walk, and you will be helping people with motor disabilities and their families!
