26 Apr SANTA TERESA 7s INVITES YOU TO STAND UP AND BE COUNTED AT HOME
The Venezuelan brand will offer its traditional Festival in a digital form for you to enjoy rugby, races and music while helping to prevent the spread of the Covid-19 virus.
El Consejo, José Rafael Revenga municipality, April 21, 2020.- Santa Teresa continues its call to all Venezuelans to stand up and be counted. For that reason, it has decided to take its Santa Teresa 7s Festival home to show that, even though circumstances are keeping us apart, together we can still be a powerful team that takes action for the best causes and has the spirit to keep on going.
Through its digital platforms on Instagram, Facebook and YouTube, Santa Teresa will present next Sunday, April 26, three events that will connect the public with the best of the Festival.
“We have a new game ahead of us and although we are all in our homes, we will only win if we all stand up and work together as a team”, said Andrés Chumaceiro, director of the Venezuela Business Unit at Santa Teresa, in reference to how we are reacting as a society to prevent the spread of Covid-19. “We believe we can do this together and that’s why we want to take the Hacienda Santa Teresa to each and every home so that you can live, just the same as other years, the emotion of the rugby players, the adrenaline of the 13K Race and the “Third Half” with the finest national and international artists”, he added.
Santa Teresa 7s will start off on Sunday at 10 a.m. with the #Race13Kencasa. The well-known trainers @SoyAnitaFit, @KakiTips y @moveyourash will be ready to make each runner feel the rush of adrenaline as they run through Hacienda Santa Teresa, climbing its hills and crossing its rugby pitches and sugarcane fields to reach the finishing line, by taking on their challenging exercise routines.
At two o’clock in the afternoon, the #Rugby7 at home will see whether the rugby enthusiasts among us are able to tackle at home to test their abilities on and off the field. After that, several world renown rugby figures, Calum Clark, player at the English club, Saracens; Agustín Pichot, vice president of World Rugby and captain of the Argentine side that gained third place at the 2007 World Cup; Bárbara Pichot, who works tirelessly for South American Rugby and, Juan Martín Hernández, captain of Argentina until 2019, will share the tools that rugby has given them to face the situation that has arisen because of the pandemic.
To close this unique experience, the players of Alcatraz Rugby Club, the home team and five times champions of Venezuela, will share their stories of how they changed a life imprisoned in darkness and without future into a life filled with light and with limitless opportunities for growth.
To close on a high, the Third Half virtual stage will from 6 p.m. onwards fill with artists that will put on an emotive, spectacular show. Among the stars to appear are the Gran Mariscal de Ayacucho Orchestra, conducted by Elisa Vegas, Song 3, the DJ Marco Allen, Jhoa Beat, Giselle Brito, Horacio Blanco, Liana Malva, Andrés Mata, El Otro Polo, Simón Grossman, Mau and Ricky, Anakena, Camilo and Evaluna, along with Vero Gómez, Manuel Silva and Jairam Navas as presenters.
