The idea to hold a charity mass rental for children from the Kostanay city orphanage, from low-income and needy families in support of Kostanay Olympians Denis Kuzin, Anastasia Krestova and Vitaly Pukhkalo belongs to the House of Friendship and the regional Assembly of the people of Kazakhstan.
To participants at the opening ceremony with the wishes of success Olympians were Head of the Secretariat of the regional Assembly of People of Kazakhstan Mazhit Shulenov, sports management leader Eugene Williams, the first coach Denis Cousin Peter Pastushenko.
Also on the scene were the closest relatives of the participants in the Olympics. This is Denis Kuzin's grandmother Svetlana Grigorievna Karaychentseva, brother of Anastasia Krestova Vadim Kornienko and wife of Vitaly Pukhkalo Anastasia Pukhkalo. They worry, worry about their athletes and wish the children to achieve the same sports heights. By the way, it was the grandmother who brought Denis into the skating section and gave it to Peter Pastushenko. She is very proud of her grandson, although she rarely sees him. And the participation of the representative of the short track Anastasia Krestova in the Olympics is a new breakthrough for women's sports in Kostanay region, since the fair sex representatives have not participated in the Winter Olympics for many years. The sportsman of the section of ski races Vitaly Puhkalo struggled to the last for the license and he succeeded.
To show the achievements of the regional CJSS No. 3, where Kuzin and Pukhkalo were brought up, ice skaters and hockey players came to the ice with demonstration performances to the songs of Kostanay artists.
The main participants were children. They were accompanied by mentors, as many of them first took to the skates. Those who already knew how to skate a bit, tried to ride on their own. They fell, got up riding again. And from the stage there were sports and patriotic songs performed by children and youth.
That participants could be warmed, in changing rooms they were treated to hot tea, baursaks and sweets. For this event has been specially prepared 50 kg baursaks.
Especially, 15 children from the Kostanay orphanage for children and teenagers were delighted. They skated to completion. And those who could not stand on skates, by the end joyfully informed their mentors that they had learned this difficult art. Of course, I had to fall more than once, to rise, but the result was worth it.
- Look, I actually was standing on skates, - continually shouting children to teachers, watch over them.
Another 35 children from low-income and low-income families were brought by social educators and teachers of urban schools. Half of them already owned skates and during the rental boldly broke away from the mentors and skated themselves. Unfortunately, not all children were able to stay until the end of the rental period, many together with teachers or social educators left early. But those who stayed to ride, were delighted!
The last song was performed by the ensemble APK. The children left the ice content and rosy cheeks. Educators, teachers and social educators thanked for the rental.
- Thank you very much for the organizers. Our children liked it very much, many of them had never skated before and were not at the Sports Palace. For them, this is a real holiday, look, every child has eyes burning. They did not even want to leave the ice, although they were already tired. Let our Olympians smile good luck. And we hope for our children, they will become heroes, and your event will encourage them to choose the right path in life, - said the representative of Kostanay shelter for children and adolescents.
Saying goodbye to the children from the orphanage, the organizers gave them about 20 kg of baursaks so that they could safely drink more tea at home.
