2006 Award: Behindertensport Oberwallis

A great honour and recognition was bestowed on Behindertensport Oberwallis (BSOW):

In 2006, Behindertensport Oberwallis – an association for sport for the disabled – became the first award winner to experience the generosity of the Sepp Blatter Foundation. Foundation founder Sepp Blatter, Foundation President René Imoberdorf and members of the Board of Management Corinne Blatter Andenmatten and Jean-Paul Brigger presented Behindertensport Oberwallis with a cheque for CHF 25,000.

The aims of the foundation were realised to the full, namely supporting humanitarian projects and institutions in the canton of Valais, philanthropy and social responsibility – goals that foundation founder Sepp Blatter feels very passionately about. The winner of the award is a sports club, where sporting activity, independence and quality of life are at the core. Over the years, the BSOW has been enabling people with disabilities to achieve greater integration and recognition in society.

The donation from the Sepp Blatter Foundation is a stimulus and motivation for future sport-related projects for people with special needs. This generous gesture enabled the BSOW to set up its own football team.
