Gasol has valued very positively the existence of the Dinem Junts program and has emphasized that this type of initiative "makes a difference" to help children not only eating properly but also to take care of their emotional health. In addition, he highlighted the importance of adolescents being able to pass on all the knowledge acquired in terms of healthy habits to their families.
The youngsters have been able to interact with the player, asking him questions about his lifestyle and his sports career and, afterwards, a dynamic basketball exercise has been organized in which they have shared the ball with the player.
Dr. Anna Veiga underlined the importance of a sports figure like Pau Gasol being involved in promoting healthy habits among young people. "With the Dinem Junts program we promote the acquisition of healthy habits in a socio-educational space with the accompaniment of social educators", says Veiga. Carol Gesa added that "with this program we seek to offer a safe and healthy environment to all the boys and girls who participate in it".
