What is Walkathon Portugal 2024?

Walkathon Portugal is a joint initiative by YPO and Associação Salvador. On two different dates and locations, a walk of approximately 5km is promoted, as part of a solidarity mission.

The aim of Walkathon Portugal 2024 is to raise awareness and funds for the inclusion of people with motor disabilities in our society. This year, teams can sign up for the walk in Porto on 18 May or in Lisbon on 19 May.

Together we can change lives! And we are counting on you to help us finance even more adapted sports projects that will help improve the physical condition, autonomy, confidence and self-esteem of people with physical disabilities.

“Sports helped minimise so many difficulties. It also made it easier for me to feel back in normality which I had been looking for since the accident. The competitive aspect allowed me to open up new horizons and start a career based on goals. I no longer thought about physiotherapy, rehabilitation exercises. Training absorbed all our attention, mine and the coach’s, and in this way it helped me in all aspects of my integration”



What projects does Associação Salvador develop?

Through 10 different projects in the areas of knowledge, integration and awareness, we promote the inclusion of people with physical disabilities, improving their quality of life and enhancing their talents and raising awareness of equal opportunities.

We directly finance and support people with proven economic need, creating greater accessibility, comfort and autonomy in their homes. We provide adapted sports equipment and grants for training and employment.

We help integrate professionals with physical disabilities back in the work foce, giving them greater autonomy and independence. We develop and hold sports activities and meetings that contribute to a significant increase in individual’s the quality of life.

We reach out to students and teachers, and, through our campaigns for Road Safety, we raise awareness with hundreds of drivers every year.

We also lobby and exert political pressure for compliance with the law and the improvement of accessibility in Portugal.

We dream of a world in which everyone can fully participate in society through an active, healthy lifestyle, ensuring that any person with physical disabilities can thoroughly enjoy their life and rights.
