When it was announced in 2009 that Rio would host the Olympics, BrazilFoundation created a fund dedicated to the city. Since then, the fund has mobilized enough resources for 53 initiatives. The #TEAMRIO campaign was created by opinion-shapers and cariocas at heart to bring visibility and resources to the fund and to help create a positive social legacy for the city.

The Event

The dinner brought 100 people together in celebration of the inspirational #TEAMRIO initiatives and the Paralympics.
