About 35 children and teenagers who love to ride bike, happily received helmets, uniforms, T-shirts, trousers, caps, socks among other. We also take the opportunity to donate FUN team uniforms and bring them our message.Nilson Morales is the treasurer of the Club Escuela de Ciclismo Orgullo Santarroseño: «We are very grateful with FUN and Scotiabank.

For Juan Felipe Silva, brand director of FUN, these kind of activities bring joy to the heart. «In FUN we build bridges and go to places where help does not normally appear.

Sport is life

We are grateful with Scotiabank! Their help is a great stimulus in the lives of many children who, due to lack of equipment, stop practicing sports. We are also thankful to the people who somehow contact us to get involved in the strategy. It transforms lives and contribute to the future of our children.

With the FUN Box strategy, we recover well-maintained implements and garments and give them a new use and value. In 2020 we have completed three donation campaigns where more than 150 children and young bike riders from Sogamoso, Anapoima and Santa Rosa de Viterbo have benefited.If you want to participate contact us at Let’s team up!
