Our company / Social Responsibility

  • Since 2005 Ritzio has been providing active support to the Paralympic movement and sportsmen with disabilities. A long-term partnership between Ritzio and the Russian Paralympic Committee began with the company’s sponsorship of the Russian national team at the 2006 Winter Paralympic Games in Turin.

    In early 2007 Ritzio International President Oleg Boyko became the head of the Paralympic Movement Development Commission within the Russian Paralympic Committee.
    At the same time he established the Paralympic Sports Foundation (Parasport), a non-profit charitable foundation organized to support training and competition for athletes with disabilities.

  • Parasport serves as a long-term source of financial assistance to athletes with physical and sensory impairments. The foundation, both in its role as a founding sponsor of the Paralympic Movement and through a variety of other fund-raising initiatives:

    • supports paralympic athletes in their participation in sports and social activities
    • provides financial support directly to promising athletes
    • stimulates public policy discussion and promotes sports among disabled individuals and groups
    • helps to enact measures to advance the prominence of paralympic sports in the country
