120th anniversary of the Czech Olympic Committee

In 2019 the Czech Olympic Committee celebrates the 120th Anniversary of its founding. The magnificent celebration named "Masters to the Masters" took place on June 17, 2019 in Rudolfinum in Prague. Among the musicalmasters who performed were  violinist Václav Hudeček and pianista Ivo Kahánek. The Czech Olympic Committee took the opportunity to acknowledge 4 eminent individuals.



Stand-up Straight project

Vera Caslavska Foundation is preparing the pilot phase of our Stand Up Straight project. The main objective is to teach preschool-age children in nursery schools (between the ages of 5-7) a set of exercises. A daily regimen of exercise will instill the habit of good posture in children even before they start attending school or begin organized sport activity.

The reward is SELF-ESTEEM.
