From 3rd to 5th of August, 2018, the IX World Children's Winners’ Games will be held in Moscow - this is a bright fest and the largest tournament among children who have conquered oncological diseases.
The Games help the children to forget about the disease and to return to active life. This is the largest volunteer project of the charitable foundation "Gift of Life". An autonomous non-profit organization "Winners' Games" has been established in order to hold the Games.
“For those kids who are still struggling with the disease, and for their parents, the Winners' Games is a very important motivation. They see hundreds and even thousands of the real children who have already coped with cancer, and this gives them strength and hope in their struggle for recovery”, - says the project head Nadezhda Kuznetsova.
The Games grow and develop constantly, this year there were regional stages in 10 Russian cities and in Belarus, nearly 800 children took part in them. Every sixth of them will come to the World Children's Winners’ Games. In total, in Moscow we are expecting 550 children from 32 regions of Russia and from 15 countries: Belarus, Bulgaria, Hungary, Germany, India, Kazakhstan, Latvia, Moldova, Serbia, Turkey, Ukraine, Croatia and, for the first time, from Egypt and Kyrgyzstan.
The programme of the Winners’ Games consists of six kinds of sports (swimming, athletics, table tennis, chess, shooting from an air rifle, football). The age of the participants varies from 7 to 16 years old. This year, for the first time, a youth tournament in table tennis will be held, in which young people from 17 to 25 years old will take part. All participants of the competitions are former wards of the charitable foundations.
For the first time the most interesting events of the tournament will be shown in the online broadcasting on the official page of the Winners’ Games in the social network "Odnoklassniki.
