As we have been informed today, in the Conquistando Escalones Association we have been awarded in the ’20 Febrer ‘Awards that are given annually on the occasion of the Foundational Festivities of the City of Vila-real. The communication has been received by the president of Conquistando Escalones and Vila-realense Abrahán Guirao, with surprise as well as an honor, being one of the greatest awards granted by the city.
As he said at first hand, “it will continue to be a pleasure to continue our struggle with the warmth of a city as supportive, as well as to carry his name wherever he goes.” When we go out in the history books for having achieved the cure for millions, the Vila-real city will have a prominent name.
And as I have said, I hope to return Vila-real and all the people who help us, what they do for us. The awards will be presented on February 17 in the Auditorium at a time to be defined. It will be a pleasure to be with all those who want to join us.
Thank you for all the calls and expressions of affection received after the news and anticipated thanks to those who will come. ”
