Hamrun Spartans players marked International Down’s Syndrome Day by visiting St Joseph school in Hamrun. They met with educators and children, including one who lives with the condition, to raise awareness about it and increase knowledge in the community. The theme of this year’s commemoration is “With us, not for us,” and the new champions of Maltese football showed this in practice by being present among the students.
The event was organized by the ‘Ħamrun Ħanin Voluntary Organization’. The players distributed mascots to the children present and gave a gift to a special supporter who attends the school. The Spartans also wore different colored socks, as has become a tradition on this day, to promote a more inclusive society that celebrates diversity.
The visit was a heartwarming experience for everyone involved. The players showed that they are not just champions on the field, but also in their commitment to making a positive impact in the community. Their presence at the school helped to break down barriers and promote understanding of Down’s Syndrome.
Overall, the Hamrun Spartans have set an inspiring example of how sports can be used as a platform to promote social causes and bring about positive change. Their visit to St Joseph school was a reminder that we all have a role to play in creating a more inclusive and accepting society.
