Sport’s Oscar goes to Raí

Raí received the Laureus World Award, considered the sport’s Oscar, this Monday night in London.

He was awarded the category “Sport for Good”, which recognizes individuals and oganisations who have made a significant contribution to society through sport.

His work at Fundação Gol de Letra and Atletas pela Cidadania were the reason for Raí’s nomination. The first, created in 1998, has two units, one in São Paulo, as well as one in Rio de Janeiro, and helps over 1.300 children in situation of social vulnerability.

The second, is an organisation formed by athletes and former athletes, from different generations and sports modalities, with the aim of raising awareness and mobilizing the society to support important causes in Brazil.

“Raí’s unweariable fight for social justice to Brazil’s youngsters reflects many of Laureus’ values”, said Edwin Moses, chairman of the institution, which nominated Raí to represent this category because of their similiar beliefs.
