On 17th, 18th and 19th of April, for the first time was held the ‘Spring Relay’ event organized by the PINK Foundation in Pernik. Four schools – 6th Secondary School “St. Cyril and Methodius”, 8th Primary School “Krakra Pernishki”, 12th Primary School “Vasil Levski” and primary school “St.Konstantin Kiril Philosopher” took part in the games. Each school consisted of a team of girls, boys, and teachers. The principles also expressed a desire to compete individually. Every day three games were played and medals were awarded to the teams with the best results, and on the last day the winner also received prize cups. The opening of the games began with a speech by the director of the PINK Foundation – Albena Krusheva followed by the Bulgarian anthem and a traditional ‘horo’ dance performed by the girls from the 6th school that hosted the event.
