Víctor Alfaro expressed his gratitude for this recognition to all the people and institutions that granted it, and in a very special way he dedicated a few words to all those who put themselves in his hands in his first years of activity: “without the trust of the Huesca Podoactiva athletes, it would not have gotten where it isIf they hadn't started trusting us today, we wouldn't be treating some of the best athletes in the world," said the company's CEO.
Alfaro, who received the award from the hands of Juan Antonio Corbalan, Olympian in Basketball and Award for Human Values at last year's Gala, highlighted the parallelism between the values of sport and those that have guided the journey of the Alfaro brothers and the team they lead at Podoactiva over all these years, such as the of sacrifice, constant effort, overcoming, respect or courage to face new challenges.
