CSR for Parasport

’Citius, altius, fortius’ at the Paralympics – supported by the national lottery company

The Hungarian national lottery company, ’Szerencsejáték Zrt.’ (hereinafter: SZRT) and the Hungarian Paralympic Committee announced their latest collaboration on 28 August, 2023, exactly a year before the Paris Paralympics. Within the framework of the collab the national lottery company will support the Paralympian athletes’ preparations for Paris on the one hand, and on the other hand, during the Paralympics, the company will provide gambling opportunity for the domestic sports-loving public in terms of the Hungarian-related competitions. In the first phase of our cooperation, already in 2023, several of our athletes were able to receive their new, more modern sports equipment thanks to the support of SZRT.

Appropriate, high-quality sports equipment is an essential part of the preparation of our Paralympians, so there was no question that we had to help our athletes in this regards, as well, during the quota acquisition period. Thanks to the company’s support, in the last months of 2023 we were able to hand over new sports equipment to, among others, our paratriathlete Petra Lévay, our paracyclist Zsombor Wermeser, our wheelchair fencers Anna Nádasdy and Richard Osváth, our para dressage rider, Ildikó Fonyódi and the management of the Hungarian Taekwondo Association.

In addition to supporting the domestic parasports movement, SZRT also pays special attention to the daily lives of people with disabilities and to promoting their social integration: for 20 years now, it has been operating its lottery ticket sales network exclusively for employees with disabilities, and it pays special attention to the service of players with disabilities in its national network, and – with disabled children in mind – participates in the creation of inclusive playgrounds.

We would like to thank SZRT for their support and wish our athletes successful preparation for the competitions in the coming period.
