Never Underestimate the Power of FORCE

Hola a tod@s, my dear friends.

Never underestimate the power of Force, because is very intense in the Hospital.

Hospital Universitario de Torrejón was “invaded” on December 30 by the soldiers of the Empire from Star Wars. A different way of living together Christmas with the “Kings of the Galaxy.’


The event was organized together with the associations AFADACS (Association of families affected by brain damage adquired), ASTOR (Association of parents of persons with Mental retardation) and the Association of Women Ada Byron, with the collaboration of the school of Football of Torrejón.

The event began in the Hall of the hospital with 40 children from ASTOR to that handed out toys and books to continue with a magic performance. Later, members of the associations and those of the Spanish Garrison 501st Legion visited hospitalized children upstairs and were that in emergencies to gave them toys and books.


There are more than a thousand ways to help, to smile and putting diseases aside, even for a while.
And certainly they works.
