New perspectives through sports

  • Support for socially disadvantaged children with the help of sport
  • Gaining confidence and motivation for education
  • Sustainability and positive energy for kids

The Frodeno Fun(d), which was founded by Triahtlon star Jan Frodeno, is a non-profit association based in Girona, whose mission is to positively influence the lives of socially disadvantaged children in the socially deprived area in the Salt district with the help of sports and especially with the "tool" of the bicycle.

The aim is to provide young people with a fun and safe environment where they can gain confidence and motivation for their education through sport.

The Pumptrack in Salt is well on its way to becoming a center for a sustainable, positively charged gathering place for kids and teens. The important thing here is to get them off the streets after school and, with the help of bicycles, give them a new perspective and break down prejudices. Since its launch in spring 2021, it has been very well received in the community and at schools.

Hundreds of children take up the offer every week. In school time as part of the lessons, but also after school. Initial results have also been seen, with a drop in petty crime in Salt.

The project is run by a small team in Girona. With the support of the Laureus Sport for Good Foundation, the Frodeno Fun(d) has a dream partner- who has experience, expertise and a network that the local team gratefully draws on.
