This Sunday, May 14, a group of patients, former patients, relatives and professionals of the Institut Guttmann participated with Sports & Life Guttman Club in the 33ª edition of "The Mile" of the Sagrada Familia, in Barcelona. In addition to enjoying a great morning of sport and having a good time in this popular race, they showed that people with disabilities can practice sports in an inclusive way.

Since 1985 the Claror Foundation has organized this athletic race of 1,609metres, considered as a sporting, playful and social event in the city of Barcelona.

Sports & Life Guttman Club is a program of sports, cultural and social activities aimed at former hospital patients, their families and friends, as well as anyone with a neurological disability, regardless of their functional abilities. The initiative allows the practice of sport and other social and cultural activities in a different environment than usual and in a standardized way, contributing to the mood and health of the participants.
