«Behindertensport Oberwallis» wins annual award for 2006
At the end of every year, the foundation bestows an award on one of several projects carefully selected during the course of the year. The award is presented in recognition of exceptional efforts on behalf of sport in the canton of Valais.
In 2006, the Foundation Award, which carries a CHF 25,000 cash prize, went to «Behindertensport Oberwallis» (BSOW) (sport for the disabled in the Upper Valais).
The award ceremony took place on 3 February 2007. The BSOW's broad-based offering has enabled many disabled persons to take part in sport, not only leading to the discovery of new talent, but also cultivating a positive attitude to life that benefits those involved every single day.
