YourGT : THE BELGIAN CHARITY
Founded in 2017, this charity supports the practice of sports in rehabilitation centers for persons with disabilities and to promote their integration through sports. Thanks to the funds raised through this project, YourGT will help the Sports Association of the Center for Traumatology and Rehabilitation (ASCTR) in Brussels and enable people with disabilities to do sports in competitions, leisure or recreation activities.
SPORTS ASSOCIATION OF THE CENTER FOR TRAUMATOLOGY AND REHABILITATION (ASCTR)
Its mission is to facilitate the social rehabilitation of people with physical disabilities through sports. Also, the ASCTR is one of the few multi-sports associations in Belgium to offer the opportunities to people with disabilities to perform and learn various sports.
Brussels was founded in 1954 by Dr. Pierre Houssa – Director and Founder of the Center for Traumatology and Rehabilitation (CTR) of the Brugmann Hospital in Brussels, supported by Victor Boin – President of the Belgian Olympic Committee – and Dr. Albert Tricot.
Nowadays, it is the one and only multi-sports organization opened to people with disabilities in the region of Brussels-Capital
Physical activity contributes not only to their physical and psychological health but also a means of rehabilitation. Indeed, exercise represents a vector of integration and helps to avoid social isolation or exclusion while fighting against sedentariness. Unfortunately, many sports facilities are not yet adapted to the needs of disabled people, particularly in terms of infrastructure.
