In the conference room of the Reggio Est water plant, yesterday morning Pallacanestro Reggiana and Iren presented their partnership, which will develop into the ‘Io Tifo Pulito’ project. “This partnership between Iren and Pallacanestro Reggiana is important because it has both a sporting and educational value – explained the sports councilor Curioni – Sport has this responsibility: not only trying to achieve victory, but also transmitting good values ​​to the most young people. Athletes are extraordinarily important examples for the new generations “.

Arturo Bertoldi, head of Eduiren (Environmental Education of Iren) did the honors: “With this year’s edition of ‘Io Tifo Pulito’ we renew an important relationship with Reggiana Basketball which has already allowed us to spreading the values ​​of sustainability in schools “. For the red and white club, the CEO Alessandro Dalla Salda was present: “First of all I would like to thank Iren for this partnership, which is important for us both from an economic point of view, but also to be able to relaunch this beautiful initiative, after the stop due to the pandemic. Our athletes are high-level professionals who have the basic values ​​to be transmitted to young people in discipline and teamwork. We are happy to return to schools with what was once Civic Education and today becomes environmental “.

Diouf, Bonacini, Crawford and Candi were present at the event. The captain himself recounted his experience: “Two words come to mind: fun and responsibility. I have always spent happy moments with school children, it is a pleasure for me to participate in these initiatives. On the other hand, I think we players we have a great responsibility towards the little ones: we are the ones who must convey and give them an example of what are the correct values ​​both on the pitch and in life “.
