Promoter entity
Purosangue Athletics Club

Purosangue is highly specialized in the field of running. It trains high-level athletes respecting them in every aspect of their personal and professional life. Purosangue grants them scholarships, accommodation, supports in the workout and selects with them the international competitions to take part, but above all, PUROSANGUE does NOT retain any percentage on their winnings. In return, it demands from athletes an irreproachable conduct in their private, sporting and professional life, inspired by the NO DOPING culture.

The project aims at support children and teenagers through the practice of sport providing continuous training: in the techniques of training; sports massage; the use of the stopwatch and the organization of competitions. The sports training will be supplemented with the teaching of other subjects such as photography and video-maker so that future coaches are also able to produce photographic and video material. A computer course will also be implemented as indispensable tool for communication strategies to allow participants to manage the relationships among athletes, managers, organizers, and social network.

The direct beneficiaries are 20 young local athletes of about 20 years, selected according to their attitudes. The indirect beneficiaries are their families and the children to whom will be offered the opportunity to play sports on an ongoing basis, with qualified staff.
