HorizonSports.TV Teams With Sportfund

HorizonSports, the world’s only nature sports and wellness video platform, ‘motivating the world to be more active in nature’, is partnering with Sportfund Onlus in a fundraising event featuring the extraordinary Italian alpinist Nives Meroi, who was the first Italian woman to climb all 8000-metre peaks without oxygen and Sherpas.

She will tell her story on 6th November in Bologna at the Antoniano Theatre and the proceeds will be used to help fund the ‘Climb for inclusion’ project.

Laurence Fox Hopper, HorizonSports CEO, said, “We are very proud to be part of Sportfund and the Climb for Inclusion project which motivates everyone — regardless of physical challenges—to be more active in nature.”

Alberto Benchimol, founder of Sportfund, added, “We are happy to have HorizonSports as our media partner since we want to encourage people with physical difficulties to be more active outdoors and help spread the ideas of inclusion worldwide.”

HorizonSports.TV is the only nature sports and wellness Video On Demand (VOD) platform that caters to people who hike, run, cycle, love mountains, want to be healthy and more active in nature. It has over 600,000 unique viewers per month through a combination of SVOD platform, Android/Apple App, OTT platforms and through smart TVs.

HorizonSports aggregates and produces inspiring video content from the top outdoor, sports events, lifestyle and adventure TV producers with a balance of sports (Ultra Trail, Mountain Bike, Ski mountaineering, climbing, endurance …) and Wellness premium programming available for unlimited on demand, live sports and streaming TV viewing.

SportFund’s Climb For Inclusion project, carried out in collaboration with Climbing Technology and Montura, aims to spread mountaineering as a tool for personal growth and social inclusion among young people.

It believes that mountain sports, combined with the beauty of the environment in which they take place, are a key reference for the development of new generations, ‘anchoring them to fundamental values such as moral strength, solidarity and the recognition of personal talent’.

For young people with disabilities, or in situations of social hardship, the project provides the economic and technical tools to get involved in outdoor sports activities, favouring a positive path for mental and physical health.
