Commencement of activities for promoting and supporting Boccia

As a member of society, we at the CAC Group engage in social contribution activities such as environmental protection and participate in activities of local communities. We also aim to build a better society through the provision of IT and healthcare services.

Specific activities include providing support for the Japan Cross Country Skiing Association for the Disabled, support for events held in local communities, helping the Red Cross Society of Japan with blood donation activities, and assisting the Ecocap Movement. We also used our 50th anniversary as an opportunity to start promoting and supporting Boccia, a sport for persons with disabilities.

Boccia, which is a Paralympic sport, was invented in Europe for people with severe cerebral palsy and those with other equally severe disabilities that affect the functions of their limbs. Players compete to place their set of red and blue balls, six each, around a white ball called the jack ball (target ball). They throw or roll the balls or hit them with other balls to place them as close as possible to the jack ball. Players who are unable to throw the ball may use a ramp (assistive device) and take part in matches if they can tell their assistants where they wish to aim the ball.

 

 

Initiatives of the CAC Group for Boccia

At the CAC Group, we have a great appreciation for Boccia because it can be enjoyed by a wide range of people, from those without disabilities to those with severe disabilities. It is a deep sport that requires sophisticated strategy and gamesmanship. We will continue to support Boccia, aiming to make it known to a greater number of people and help provide more opportunities for disabled people to play this sport.

● Provide support as a special partner of the Japan Boccia Association

● Send employee volunteers to various tournaments to support the operations and cheer on players

● Create an environment for watching Boccia games through measures such as developing support tools by making use of information technologies, a strength of the CAC Group
