Olympic champion Saúl Craviotto, one of the greatest athletes in this country, had donated one of his Spanish national team jerseys to the project“This medal is yours”, initiative of the best and most honored Spanish athletes with the aim of raising funds for the Spanish Red Cross within the framework of “Our best victory”in the fight against the pandemic ofCOVID-19. In the end yesterdaythe Los Cuervos de Pravia Club managed to get that shirt, which will probably be the flag bearer at the Tokyo 2021 Olympics, by disbursing 1,800 euros,money that was contributed by the canoeists of the canoeing entity.
“Saúl is an example for us as an athlete, but above all as a person, since all the values that we try to instill in our young athletes are reflected in him,” they point out from the Club Los Cuervos, the entity that presidesDiego Cuervo Menes. On March 28 this same club already carried out a series of solidarity initiatives for its neighbors in the Pravia council.When all this happens, Craviotto will approach Pravia to personally deliver the jersey auctioned to the sports entity.
One of the first decisions carried out by the Los Cuervos Club was to exempt the advertising ofthe collaborators of the entity in this year 2020, which means 14,000 euros.“They are a fundamental part of the club and without their disinterested help our activity would be impossible to sustain, that is why we want this small gesture to thank the commerce, the hospitality industry and the small companies of our town for their help and as a sign to all our neighbors who with small actions can help revitalize the economy of our council when this happens. “In addition, they have also made available to the City Council the two vans for what they deem appropriate while the situation lasts.
