The Russian Paralympic Committee gratefully acknowledge Oleg Boyko, the founder of the “Parasport” Fund for the comprehensive assistance and support that the Fund has been providing to the National Paralympic Movement for many years.
During the Pandemic, members of the Paralympic Teams felt a special attention from Mr. Boyko. In the spring of 2020, the Fund efficiently provided athletes and coaches with Personnel Protective Equipment – medical masks and gloves and allocated funds for their distribution to all regions of our country. It has contributed immeasurably to reduce the risk of COVID-19 among members of the National Teams. More than two thousand athletes from more than 35 constituent entities of the Russian Federation, representing 28 sports, received targeted aid.
The Russian Paralympic Committee has spent remaining funds on purchasing a high-quality inventory and equipment for the Para Snowboard Team. During the period of active preparation of snowboarders for qualifying starts for participation in the Paralympic Winter Games in Beijing (China), this assistance became timely and effective.
The Paralympic Family hopes for further fruitful cooperation with Mr. Boyko’s Fund “Parasport”.
