Report from Olympiakos
The multi-sport and informative workshops of Olympiakos started with enthusiasm. The participants discussed with the coaches and will be asked to answer the questionnaire regarding the difficulties faced by people with diabetes during sports activity.
Olympiacos, in collaboration with local organizations of people with diabetes, is invited to collect the experiences and opinions of these people in order to investigate both their level of sports activity and the obstacles to it.
After the collection of the questionnaires, the program is expected to move to the main stage of its implementation, which concerns the writing of a special manual for sports and diabetes as well as the organization of sports activities for people with diabetes.
Olympiacos, active in issues related to the integration of vulnerable social groups in sports, embraced this initiative from the first moment and is planning sports actions in the following months of the program.
Summer camp for Sport & Diabetes
The Sport Departments of Olympiacos continue their activities during the summer season and invite kids and parents to Summer Camp 2022 which will be held at the facilities of the Sailing Department of Olympiacos in Mikrolimanos.
