José Manuel Martínez Lifetime Achievement Award
Vicente del Bosque.
Vicente del Bosque, beyond being a great national and international sporting celebrity, has a charitable side that many of us do not know about, focusing on providing support and visibility to groups that require more attention.
Particularly noteworthy are his contributions to research into rare diseases, his support for people with Down syndrome, his cooperation with not-for-profit charity organizations - who have awarded him on several occasions for the key role he has played in their activities, such as Save the Children; his involvement with environmental conservation and his commitment to childhood and boys and girls living with illnesses.
Ensuring children and young people live in adequate conditions is a priority for the former national football manager, and he has carried out many related actions in conjunction with numerous charity organizations.
Vicente del Bosque is much more than a famous sportsperson. His charity work speaks for itself, helping us all realize that everybody can help provide a better future for those who most need it.
