There are stories that are worth telling and supporting… one of them is that of Bernardo Bernardini, a very young airline pilot who – when he was only 19, following an accident while training – risked never being able to walk again.
Recovering from such an accident has been no mean feat, however Bernardo finally succeeded! And in order to prove that you should never give up, he has become a Triathlete, competing in a sport which combines swimming, cycling and running.
This is the concept behind the 4ALL project, aimed at promoting sport as something truly inclusive, within everyone’s reach; in 2019 it resulted in the event “Road to Rome”, a cycling route which Bernardo has decided to complete in order to bring a universal message of integration and courage, showing that in life you can actually achieve goals which were considered impossible.
This year Cuore, a brand which has always promoted physical exercise combined with a healthy diet as a valuable tool for everyone, regardless of age and physical abilities, has decided to support the project entitled Road to Rome 2021, whose aim includes raising funds for Leonardo, a 17-year old boy who has been diagnosed with Ewing’s sarcoma, a highly aggressive form of bone cancer requiring an extremely complex and expensive physiotherapy protocol for neuro-rehabilitation.
The race started on the 23rd of June and Bernardo – having travelled 776 kilometres and burned almost 20.000 calories – arrived in Rome on Tuesday 29th June, completing the third edition of Road to Rome 2021, passing the Coliseum and several other iconic places in the Eternal City, meeting many important personalities along the way, thus making his message of integration and inclusiveness sound loud and clear.
We cannot help feeling proud of having stood by him during the Road to Rome 2021 race, conveying such a significant message of inclusiveness and integration.
