With the objective of promoting healthy lifestyle habits and good coexistence among young people, the Youth Soccer Tournament “Rescatemos de Corazón Villa Juárez” (Let’s Rescue Villa Juárez from the Heart) was held last March.
More than 15 youth teams participated in the tournament and after several matches, the finalists were La Primavera and Gente Nueva, with the victory going to La Primavera.
Mr. Daniel Cardenas Izabal, President of the Cardenas Foundation, was present at the presentation of the trophies, who recognized all the young people for their efforts and encouraged them to continue promoting sports in their lives.
The valuable participation of the sponsors of the tournament was also recognized: Agricola Ritz, Agrícola El Porvenir, the Mayor of Villa Juarez, Bogar Diarte and of course the work of the tournament coordinator, Ángel Vega.
Among the many benefits and the importance of sports in the health of children, we highlight the improvement of their coordination and orientation, muscle level, balance and flexibility. They also develop skills and abilities in their movements.
Sport also highlights its social impact thanks to its different manifestations: playful and recreational, due to its impact on the growth and development of children.
Fundación Cardenas is an institution that manages, links and coordinates community projects. They develop sustainable and self-managing projects that help communities to live better by promoting their active participation.
