Project description:

Betsmara’s project is a national fundraising event supporting the Puerto Rican NOC’s “Moving For Our People Fund” through the sale of Olympic Values-based colouring books. The proceeds enable the organisation of active events and educational programmes for underprivileged communities, focused on healthy living and the Olympic Values .

The aim is for the books to reach 2,500 young people aged 4-9, with two-thirds of proceeds going directly to the fund. More than 400 young people and 24 faculty members in schools are engaged in physical activity through Moving For Our People programming.
