After winning bronze in the 50 meter freestyle event of the S10 class in the Tokyo Paralympics (Japan), the swimmer Philippe Rodrigues embarks on a new challenge next Sunday (26). But now it will be during your vacation and for a very noble reason. The medalist from Pernambuco will kitesurf for seven days from Ceará to Maranhão in support of a solidary action.

Phelipe has been a volunteer with the British Dreamflight Project for seven years. The initiative organizes an annual trip for 192 children in socially vulnerable situations, with disabilities or with a serious illness. The ten-day Disney tour (USA) is completely free for participants.

“Here, the result that matters is not the milliseconds, but reaching the goal of the cost of the dream trip for at least two children,” said Phelipe, owner of eight Paralympic medals and a lover of water sports such as surfing , kitesurfing and windsurfing, through its press office. The goal is to raise approximately 10 thousand reais.

In addition to the Paralympic champion, the challenge will have the participation of ten other people. The trip should take between six and seven days. During this period, donations can be made directly at the site from the project.
