The International Day of Sport for Development and Peace is an annual celebration of the power of sport to drive social change, community development and to foster peace and understanding. To celebrate this day, even as we fight the COVID-19 epidemic, let's keep physically active, healthy and supportive of our communities: together we will prevail during this ordeal!
It has been abundantly proven that physical exercise is beneficial, both physically and psychologically. The old saying, "a healthy mind in a healthy body", has shown to be accurate by studies. Empirically, you can personally testify to a substantial improvement in your quality of life if you do some exercise.
Life is suspended right now. So many travels postponed, meetings with friends delayed, fun and sports alike left for another day. But life is resilient. The human spirit is unstoppable. We will prevail!
Many sporting events create partnerships with brands to secure either their involvement in the event or simply their support for it. Partnerships of this type are becoming increasingly organic.
Due to the new coronavirus epidemic, the Portugal Legends Handball Cup will be postponed to October 2, 3 & 4, 2020. LX50 Handball and Move Sports, the event organisers, are making this decision in line with the latest recommendations from the Portuguese Government, through its National Health Service (NHS), the World Health Organization (WHO), and the Portuguese Handball Federation, which cancelled all handball activity in the country as of yesterday.
Despite being two completely different activities, occurring at different times of the day and involving different people, there are certainly benefits to be gained when athletes take part in the daily life of businesses, especially if they are from team sports.
