Our youngest patients to the Barça’s Miniestadi!

Wednesday, 21 December, 2016

Last Sunday morning, a group of children patients who do rehabilitation in the hospital could enjoy a very special day participating in a football match with soccer players Carles Puyol and Eric Abidal at the Miniestadi of Futbol Club Barcelona.

After passing, one by one, between a very special corridor of the hand of Puyol and Abidal while their team-mate encouraged them, our pediatric patients played the soccer match with the two players, each one captain of a different team.

Once the game ended, a photo of the group and another with all famous faces that faced the match of Celebrities vs. Celebrities that is played every year for La Marató, captured the moment for the memory.

The activity has been possible thanks to the Fundació FCB, the athletes Puyol and Abidal, to Guttmann's professionals and volunteers who accompanied and helped the patients; and was carried out in collaboration with La Marató de TV3 held the same Sunday, this year dedicated to stroke and traumatic brain and spinal cord injuries.
