ACCIONA sponsored the inclusive “Juntos avanzamos GM” race for the second time, which was held on Sunday 27 January in San Luis Potosí, supported by the city’s Citizens Sports Council, the Municipal Sports Department and the Paralympics Sports Programme of the city’s sports institute (INPODE), among others. VIP guests at the event included the Olympic medallist, Saúl Mendoza, Mexico’s leading representative of paralympic sports.
All of the funds raised by the race will be donated to the “Juntos, una experiencia compartida” not-for-profit association to support the social inclusion and employment of people with disabilities. This association has managed to place more than 450 people with disabilities into employment with companies in San Luis Potosí’s industrial zone thanks to events such as this.
The race included different distances (3, 5 and 10 km) taking in the most emblematic sites around the city’s historical centre. In addition to the wheelchair category, there were age group categories for 18-29, 30-39, 40-49 and 50 years old and above. The prizes included 1,500 pesos for the winner of each category and 1,000 pesos for the runners-up and all participants were entered into a draw for one of the latest car models. #JuntosAvanzamos
