Omega Pharma - Quick-Step Cycling Team met with Right to Play, a global organization that uses the transformative power of play to educate and empower children facing adversity. They also met with Right to Play donors.
Through sports and games, Right to Play helps children build essential life skills and a better future. Athletes travel around the world to places such as South America and Africa to spend time with children who need support. Some athletes fundraise for these children.
"I just want to thank you for including us," Levi Leipheimer said on Monday."Obviously as professional athletes, we understand the therapy and power of exercise. We started at a young age as well and I think it kept us on the right track. We really understand where you're coming from and why it's important to give back — to remind us of why we got into this sport in the first place."
