Biathlon stars plant Legends’ Park in Borovlyany

MINSK, 19 September (BelTA) – The retired biathlon stars planted the Legends’ Park during their visit to the Belarusian Children’s Hospice Lesnaya Polyana on 17 September, BelTA has learned.

The biathletes were shown new premises of the center, met with children and presented them with gifts, and planted trees together with the children near the hospice, a future Legends’ Park.

The funds raised during the first Legends’ Race were invested in the construction of the Belarusian Children’s Hospice Lesnaya Polyana.

“Sport is sport, but the life can be different. I am grateful to the organizers of the festival that they brought us to the hospice where we could talk to the children and bring them some joy. I am happy that we helped build this center. All the money raised from the sale of tickets was used for the construction of the center. I am impressed,” noted Norwegian biathlete Liv Grete Skjelbreid.

The international biathlon festival Legends’ Race – Biathlon Stars for Peace took place at the National Olympic Center Raubichi on 18 September.
