Soccer Star Ronaldinho Joins The Fight Against AIDS

| Filed under: HealthSoccer

Ronaldinho AIDS

Soccer star Ronadinho has joined the fight against AIDS with the UN, and we are so excited to see him take part!

The reason why he's becoming active in the cause is that he'll be able to use his soccer stardom to help educate kids — as kids are prone to look up to soccer players, especially in countries where soccer is huge! Only a 1/3 of the youth actually have an understanding of what AIDS is, so hopefully this will help boost that.

Here's what he had to say:

“I am honored to stand together with UNAIDS and the Ministry of Health of Brazil in the response to HIV. I am delighted to make a small contribution to this important cause by doing what I do best: playing football.”

Brilliant! We're so glad he's doing this!

Hopefully others will join him!
