Migrant Children Sports Day

On a very warm Sunday afternoon, 12th May 2013, You Dao bussed in 197 migrant children to the Shanghai Rugby Sports Ground. These children were put into teams with people from the corporate world. There were 13 teams involved in revolving through four sports: American football, soccer, rugby and cricket. There was a half hour in each sport with the professional coaches from “Sport For All.” Afterwards the children sat down to dinner in the club house and then returned home in the busses. There was team building, interchange between the corporate people and the migrant children in a demonstration of community development through sport. The kids really enjoyed themselves as they ran around on the green grass, and some very tired but happy corporate players also enjoyed some dinner and refreshments in the Shanghai Rugby clubrooms, at the close of play.
