Carlos Sastre (CSC) is among a number of prominent persons in the region of Avila, who have joined forces in raising funds for children with Down's syndrome.

Along with people like football player Iker Casillas from Real Madrid, actors Tito Valverde and Fedra Llorente, restaurateur Lucio and rock star Alvaro Benito Sastre has happily agreed to be a part of this project.

Sastre said: "I'm just really honored that they can use my help and I'm only happy to support such a good cause. I had a great day with the kids, when the pictures were taken and I think they came out really great."

The Spanish CSC captain continued by saying: "I think the fact that the pictures portray both happy and serious kids represents them quite well. They were all so sweet and I truly hope this project will help them."

Team CSC have also chosen to support this project by buying some calendars to be sold in the CSC web shop as soon as the team receives them from Carlos Sastre. All proceeds will of course go to the above-mentioned project in Avila.
