Today, a contest named after hero of “Heavenly Hundred” Dmytro Maksymov – a sportsman-deaflympics, who perished during Euromaidan - was launched.

The event’s aim – is to implement the dreams and ideals of the “Heavenly Hundred” heroes who did not have enough time to fulfill them in person. There will be decorations in three nominations: organization and development of institutions for engagement in sports activities and rehabilitation, charitable causes and conducting sporting contests. Adviser of the Minister of Youth and Sport of Ukraine Volodymyr Bulba explained this at the Ukrainian Crisis Media Center during a briefing.

“It is not a commercial decoration, it comes from the heart and soul. It is designated for those people who have already begun to create conditions enabling disabled people to go in for sport”, – he says.

The contest will last from April 5 till April 22, 2017. Applications can be submitted until April 22, 2017. You can find more information about the contest and application forms on the “Family of “Heavenly Hundred” Heroes” NGO’s site and Ukrainian Ministry of Youth and Sport’s site.
