The second ever SPICY 3 will be taking place on 10 September. The purpose of this team triathlon event, where one member of each team has a disability, is to raise money for the Hymne Aux Enfants Foundation. As an Ambassador for the event, Brussels South Charleroi Airport is playing an active role in organising SPICY 3, including entering a BSCA team in the triathlon, putting on a range of activities for everyone to enjoy and helping to find more partners. Committed to upholding the values of solidarity, mutual support and team spirit, BSCA was keen to help promote this year’s event, the second of its kind, to bring together the able-bodied and the less able-bodied for a day dedicated to friendship and passion to help sick children.
Each team taking part in the triathlon will be made up of three people, one of whom will have some form of mental, sensorial or physical disability. Each member of the team will take it in turns to attempt the three triathlon disciplines, namely swimming (500m), cycling (24km) and running (6km). In order to take part in the event, each team needs to secure sponsorship with a view to raising at least €1,500.
To open up the event to everybody, and to make sure that everyone has something to contribute, Brussels South Charleroi Airport is delighted to be able to organise a range of additional activities throughout the day. As an Ambassador, BSCA will be putting on a futsal tournament (10 teams maximum – to take part: €10/person), a beach volley tournament (16 teams maximum – to take part: €10/person), and a spinning marathon (€7/hour/person).
All the money raised will be donated to the Hymne Aux Enfants Foundation, which helps children suffering from serious illnesses, like noma, in Burkina Faso – http://www.hymne-aux-enfants.org/.
Jean-Jacques CLOQUET, CEO of Brussels South Charleroi Airport, explains: “For the second event of its kind, we were keen to do our bit for this worthy cause. As an Ambassador for SPICY 3, we have helped to organise and support this fantastic project, which will bring together people from all backgrounds, to help children suffering from noma, their families, as well as local teams of volunteers. Above and beyond the airport’s operations, it is important to re-establish its social role to help make other people’s lives better. That is what solidarity is all about. We would therefore like to encourage potential participants and sponsors to come and join us on 10 September 2017 at the Lacs de l’Eau d’Heure, Domaine de Falemprise, for a day of sport and fun, with music, sporting activities and other events for all ages.”
