For the sixth year in a row, Foxconn Global Services Division (FGSD), the EMEA branch of Foxconn Global Service Solutions Division, part of the Hon Hai Precision Industry Co Ltd. (Foxconn) Group, is supporting Hvězda SKP Pardubice, the team of disabled athletes. The team is one of the largest of its kind in the Czech Republic. Its members compete on both the local and international stage, including the Paralympic Games.
FGSD’s support includes the delivery of computers and financial contributions. The donations are used for acquiring new sports equipment and clothing, helping the team to compete at international events.
“We are happy to support a local club that has such an international reach. The results of disabled athletes from our region are breathtaking. This year we contributed 25,000 Czech crowns. With that money, Hvězda SKP Pardubice plans to buy more new sports equipment and clothing and also to use some of that money to cover the costs of attending international events. We hope we will be able to cooperate for many years to come,” said Otakar Sedláček, HR Manager at FGSD.
As well as the professional Czech disabled athletes, the equipment is also available for amateur athletes and newcomers. The club is open to the general public to come and try out exercises from a disabled person’s perspective.
