Fonds Gehandicaptensport (Disability Sport Foundation) & Scelta Mushrooms
Scelta Mushrooms is committed to working towards a better society by developing natural and healthy products, but also by supporting societal projects. Scelta feels closely involved with people who have a handicap and is therefore 1% FairShare® partner of Fonds Gehandicaptensport (Disability Sport Foundation) for many years already. It supports Fonds Gehandicaptensport to improve the disadvantaged position of disability sport in the Netherlands.
Sport is very important for people with a physical or mental handicap. Sport improves their condition and motor skills, increases their social network and self-confidence, and ensures increased participation in society. For Scelta, disability sport is the real premier league. It aims for handicapped people to get the best out of themselves through sport. Scelta Mushrooms is committed to making a contribution of 1% on top of its total sport sponsoring budget, this 1% is completely dedicated to disability sport.
For example, Scelta has been the name sponsor of the G-loop for Weir Minerals Venloop since the first edition and it made the category for disabled drivers possible during the Driving competitions in Horst in 2011. In addition to this sponsoring, Scelta also supported 15 runners with mental retardation in 2011. Partly thanks to Scelta they were able to start in the International Four Days Marches Nijmegen together with their 12 personal buddies.
