Several athletes from the Romanian Olympic Rowing Team made a surprise visit to our Casa Herbalife partner, Asociaţia Ana Şi Copiii, to share inspirational stories and celebrate Mark Hughes Day.

The Olympians interacted with teenagers from the Casa, trained together, and motivated them to do well in school. Herbalife Romania and the Romanian Rowing Federation teamed up to organize the Inspirational Day event.

“I came here today with an open heart, and I cannot describe in words the joy of the fact that, through our performances, we can inspire others,” said Simona Radiş, an Olympic champion, multiple world, and European champion. “I want all young people to understand that, regardless of the obstacles encountered on their way, with effort and determination, I can overcome any challenge.”

Simona was joined by Olympians Ioana Vrînceanu, Iuliana Buhuş, Victoria Petreanu, Adriana Adam, Florin Arteni, Florin Lehaci and Ştefan Berariu, who motivated the teenagers to set ambitious goals and increase their confidence.

“As a performance athlete, I went through many difficult moments where I felt that I wanted to give up,” said Ştefan Berariu, Olympic rowing vice-champion. “If you work for your dream and don’t let anyone tell you that you can’t, the results will come. Patience, hard work, determination, and continuity, those are the values that I hope we managed to convey to the young people today.”

Since 2017, HNF has partnered with Asociaţia Ana Şi Copiii to help over 200 children in need benefit daily from nutritious meals, homework help, camps, and more.

Special thank you to all the Olympians who took the time to visit the Casa. Learn more about how you can help improve the lives of children and communities.
