The project Diabetic runners and cyclist for more sport for all in Europe: SportGiveChance stems from the belief that health in cities and communities is a common asset to be safeguarded and promoted.
The sedentary lifestyle, favoured by automation, along with poor diet, familiarity, aging, obesity, smoking and stress, are the main causes of the increase in chronic diseases, including diabetes, defined a real pandemic by the WHO (World Health Organization).
As was foreseen by the Erasmus plus project, which focuses on the value and importance of sport and physical exercise, also as a response and a healthy lifestyle, sport events with seminars and workshops were organized, through which the target goal of 1086 participants among athletes and experts from 16 European countries and national and local organizations has been reached.
