Participants of Zalgiris Kaunas and Euroleague Basketball One Team social program has finished the first part of the season with an exciting meeting. One Team ambassadors Renaldas Seibutis and Olivier Hanlan congratulated the kids from Kaunas children socialization center with successful involvement into the positive activities throughout the four months of the campaign.
In the final session Zalgiris players presented participants with certificates of One Team program. Seibutis and Hanlan congratulated each of them for fulfilling all the tasks to become a better person.
“It was an honor for me to join this program. I believe that we managed to touch the hearts of these kids and we really became a One Team. We extended our knowledge, created new ideas and working together has helped every one of us to grow” – Renaldas Seibutis told after the last meeting with the kids.
In the several meetings throughout the four months children from Kaunas socialization center have learned to act as a team and help each other through the game of basketball. It helped to develop their personalities and to find the aims they could seek in the future.
“I am sure that this Zalgiris and Euroleague Basketball project will inspire the kids to reach for their dreams. We have talked about it in our meetings and with our examples we tried to explain that with the right efforts you can achieve everything you want. The smiles on their faces were a prove that we did a good job and I am sure it was a step forward in their lives” – said Zalgiris guard and One Team ambassador Oliver Hanlan.
Zalgiris Kaunas and One Team project will continue next month when the new participants will join the program.
