The Cuomo Foundation has been a partner of the Monegasque Rugby Federation since 2013.

The 2019 edition of the annual Challenge Sainte Dévote was held in Monaco on May 11th. As every year, the members of the Cuomo Foundation took part in the tournament which is as much a sporting event as it is a party dedicated to children.

17 mixed teams from 14 countries met at the Louis II stadium for this 9th season of the tournament. The team from Montpellier came out the winner.

Alongside the main tournament, other sporting activities were organised around the oval ball, including sports awareness programmes for children and young adults with disabilities. In this respect, the Monaco Disease Power association, also a partner of the Cuomo Foundation since 2012, took part in this sports day in the presence of a group of young people who benefit from its support.

The tournament is organised by the Monegasque Rugby Federation with the aim of instilling civic values in young people through rugby, with solidarity, respect and discipline at the top of the list. The Foundation has been a partner since 2013.
