Practicing sport for the benefit of the most disadvantaged

2022, Belgium

Reducing inequalities also means fighting daily against marginalization, poverty, improving school conditions for children with disabilities and giving them access to adapted sports activities.

01. No poverty
10. Reduced inequalities

Table-Ronde 63 is one of the 98 Belgian clubs of the Table-Ronde movement inspired by a speech of the Prince of Wales in 1927 at an industrial fair calling on young men (18-40 years) to mobilize for:

  • Promote friendship through professional and social life
  • Promote non-political, linguistic, denominational or social ideals
  • Support the surrounding communities

TR63 is composed of about twenty members who mobilize each year to support various associations in the Liège region, on the medium or long term. Currently, TR63 supports the Joëlle Robins school, which welcomes children with learning difficulties, and the non-profit organization SMI-LE (Service Mobile Infirmier Liégeois), which, thanks to its medical action in the streets of the city, helps to reduce the morbidity and mortality rate among the most disadvantaged.

In order to finance its different actions, TR63 organizes activities and in particular the 24h Jogging of Liege. The idea is to raise funds through sports activities.

We are supporting Round Table 63 for three years because it is our duty to encourage existing initiatives that contribute to a better world.

And because alone we can go faster, but together we can go further, we encourage John Cockerill Group employees to take action to help disadvantaged children, the disabled and the homeless. In this spirit, the John Cockerill Foundation grants teams of employees who have run together a minimum of established kilometers a check for a maximum value of €10,000 to an association of their choice.
