JYSK recognised for supporting parasports in Romania

JYSK has received the award for the best company in supporting Paralympic sports in Romania at the first edition of Sports Business Awards Gala. Raluca Dascălu, Communications Manager of JYSK, accepted the trophy:

"We support Paralympic sport because we believe that athletes with disabilities are a great example of motivation and ambition. If you listen to the stories of para-athletes, and I invite you to do so, I assure you that you will also be motivated to be more active," said Raluca.
