The 10th anniversary of Winners Games will begin in a month! The year passed quickly. In a few days, children from all over Russia and from other countries who have won oncological diseases will come to Moscow. Today we want to share with you the schedule of Games, photos of past competitions and tell the inspiring story of one of our former winners.
During the ten years of existence of the Games, more than 4,000 children from all over the world took part in the project. These are 22 countries and about 40 regions of Russia. The organization and holding of the Games in Moscow are fully coordinated and implemented by the Organizing Committee of ONE "world children's games of winners."
This year the Games will be held from 3 to 6 July in CSKA. More than 500 children aged 7 to 16 years will come to win medals, set records and have a great time. Participating countries this year: Belarus, Bulgaria, Croatia, Germany, Hungary, India, Kazakhstan, Kyrgyzstan, Latvia, Moldova, Russia, Serbia, Turkey, Ukraine. For the first time, guys from Slovakia will come to the Games! Moreover, of course, we will wait for boys and girls from Moscow, the region and other cities: our former winners and winners of regional funds.
Every Game we see tens, hundreds of proofs that the most challenging diagnosis will cure. Children, even though they can be treated for months and years, feel bad, recover after some time, and return home. Also, at home, they are waiting to see their own families, to begin to study, to do sports and to work.
For example, what happened with Stas Tokarchuk, who is 25-year-old. In December 2009, he was diagnosed with acute lymphoblastic leukemia, Stas was for some time in Magadan hospitals, in February he became a patient of the Russian children's clinical hospital. So somewhere in June, that is, after only a few months of therapy, when the primary treatment was in full swing, he took part in a promo video for Games of winners. According to the script, Stas was sitting in a hospital bed, but suddenly he got up, took a few steps... and he was out on the football field of the Games! Luckily, as a part of the whole football team, this guy scored a goal.
"Of course, I immediately agreed to the shooting, I caught an opportunity to get out of the house, — recalls Stas. — Nadezhda Kuznetsova, then she was still a volunteer, agreed with the doctors, I was released. I just ended the cycle of intensive chemotherapy, before filming I barely moved. Also, I had to hit the ball. Moreover, although I played football before my illness and knew how to do everything right, my body did not obey me, I lacked strength in my muscles. After hitting the ball, I fell... However, emotions from the shooting were enough for a long time!»
In the fall, Stas, for the first time, came home to the Magadan Region, and he soon recovered completely. Moreover, after some time together with friends repaired a gym in his township. Then the young man moved to Magadan, entered the University, and received two educations at once. At the same time, with the study, I continued to play sports, I took the first places in interuniversity and regional competitions in a bench press. Now Stas no longer engaged with heavyweight, but he still loves the Games. He got married two years ago, and his family is expected a baby soon.
