BISFed sends condolences to the friends and family of José-Luis Campo

BISFed was saddened to hear the tragic news that Jose-Luis Campo, President of the Americas Paralympic Committee passed away suddenly yesterday. José-Luis was a fantastic ambassador for Paralympic sport, and a wonderful friend of the game of boccia. He was doing so much to help develop the game in the Americas, always with boundless energy and enthusiasm. Our thoughts and prayers are with José-Luis’ family and all his friends in the Americas at this sad time. We will miss him greatly.
