What is Walkathon Portugal 2023?

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

The aim of Walkathon Portugal 2023 is to raise awareness for the inclusion of people with motor disability and that is why we are counting on you to help us raise funds. This year teams can sign up for the walk in Porto, on the 17th of June, or in Lisbon, on the 18th of June.

Together we can change lives! And we are counting on you to help us finance even more works at home for people with motor disabilities and proven economic need.





How will my donation help?

Your donation will support Associação Salvador in its work to create better living conditions for people with reduced mobility or motor disability. We work with great dedication to create a more inclusive and accessible country for all, without exception. We support hundreds of people every year, and since 2003 we already changed the life of 4354 people.

“With the support provided by Associação Salvador, I have regained my joy and will to live. I will be completely autonomous and independent as I was before my accident. I will be able to live a so-called normal life like any other young person of my age and that makes me very happy. Thank you for your trust. I will continue to fight to be an example to follow and exceed expectations. Thank you very much Associação Salvador!”



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 finance and support directly 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 integrate professionals with physical disabilities, giving them greater autonomy and independence. We develop and hold sports activities and meetings that contribute to a significant increase in the quality of life.

We reach out to students and teachers, and with 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 have an active participation in society through an active, healthy lifestyle, and ensure that any person with physical disabilities can fully enjoy their life and rights.
