From their arrival, early in the morning, a group of Lima 2019 staff members, the Peruvian wheelchair basketball team and Milco, the official mascot, caught the attention of children and adults.
Paola Eucástegui, staff member of the Special Project for the Preparation and Development of the Pan American and Parapan American Games, shared that from the moment they received the invitation, they worked very hard to prepare and that they are happy for their participation in this important event.
It should be noted that this is the first time athletes with an impairment affiliated to the National Commission for the Integration of People with Impairments (CONADIS) participate in the Great Military Parade, as an example of the process of social inclusion of people with an impairment in our country.
