In early August, IX World Winners’ Games were held in Moscow – the largest in the world competition for children who have won cancer. This large-scale project is supported by many stars every year.
This time among those who found time in their busy schedule to communicate with the participants were Svetlana Loboda, Yuliya Peresild, Zara, Ravshana Kurkova, Pyotr Fedorov and many other famous actors, TV hosts and sportsmen.
This year 550 children aged from 7 to 16 from 14 countries took part in the Games: Russia, Belarus, Bulgaria, Hungary, Germany, India, Kazakhstan, Latvia, Moldova, Serbia, Turkey, Ukraine, Croatia and for the first time from Kyrgyzstan .
Competitions were held with the support of the fund “Give life” – at the opening ceremony co-founder of the fund Chulpan Khamatova:
Games are a vivid proof that the work that we do is very important. This is a fantastic, global result. Sometimes we get tired, but after these three days there are forces to move on and continue to work with a smile! We would very much like that the “Winners’ Games” become the hallmark of our country,
– said the actress.
Throughout the time that the competitions lasted, on a visit to the guys every day came the stars, who personally handed awards to the winners of the tournaments. Recall, “Winners’ Games” is a unique rehabilitation project that helps children who survived cancer to re-believe in themselves, to their strengths and restore a sense of completeness of life.
