Participants will enjoy a welcome cocktail accompanied by Ochoa, the Foxes, and other sports personalities.

The financial income of the tournament will be allocated to CRISMA for rehabilitation therapies to children and people with physical, neurological, or mixed disabilities. “For the very least of those who can’t do for themselves, we are happy to do this for them,” said Ex-President Vicente Fox, referring to the on-going development of CRISMA.
“Hope is one of the most important motors of life that a human being can have today, while facing so many gray clouds … we shall find the light of hope and give others hope,” Martha Sahagún de Fox said. “The goal of CRISMA goes beyond therapy. The organization also is intent on raising the level of understanding and tolerance toward disabled children on the part of the community at large so that those children and their families can lead improved and happier lives.”
