Hello all Awoques fans,
My name is Maria Gustafsson. I work at Awoque with and for social good at World Transplant Games (WTG) – and what a fantastic mission it is! WTG is being held one whole week in June, with athletic competitions in Göteborg, where the common thing between the competitors is that they still have their health due to organ donation.
Royal news released last week when it became official that Prince Daniel is the royal patron of the event. This is an important matter to Prince Daniel, since he has undergone a kidney transplant.
This morning while enjoying the spring sun and discovering the first flowers of the year, I thought about how amazing it is that the athletes will come to Sweden to participate. They will arrive from more than fifty countries to meet, compete and spread their gratitude over actually being able to run, swim or play petangue (the international name for boule).
Every sporting event worth its name has dedicated volunteers and of course their own mascot. WTG even has two – a couple of happy mooses which will appear on different places in Göteborg during the spring.
The moose mascots still don’t have names – what do you think they should be called? Feel free to give proposals in the comments!
Do you want to participate as a volunteer at the event? Register here!
Sunny spring greetings!
