Another round in the fight against malaria.
For the second successive year, Iker Casillas and Rafael Nadal have organised an event to help those suffering from malaria. Using the slogan 'Free the world of malaria' both the Spanish sportsmen appeared at a Press Conference.
The event will be in the form of a sporting challenge, which will be held on 16th December in the Community Sports Palace in Madrid. There will be a tennis match, a football match, and a go-kart race, which is a new addition from last year's event. The Real Madrid player told (this newspaper) that "the initiative began with a conversation that I had with Rafa Nadal. We wanted Spanish sport to be united to benefit a good cause, and this idea then occured to us. Last year everything came out very well, and we hope that it continues this time". Nadal said that "it was necessary to repeat the challenge this year because of all the good that came out of it the first time, and I hope that the project will continue for a long time because I believe that the world needs it"
Amongst the sportsmen who will go to the event, will be tennis players David Ferrer, Fernando Verdasco and Novak Djokovic, footballers Reina, Cannavaro, Forlán, Sergio Branches, Raul, David Villa, and Xavi, drivers Fernando Alonso, Valentino Rossi, Jorge Lorenzo and Carlos Sa'inz and cyclict Alberto Contador, amongst others.
