Spainís Queen Sofia Awarded Prize in Germany

BERLIN Ė Spainís Queen Sofia guaranteed Friday that her foundation will continue aiding research into Alzheimerís disease and carrying out social projects, after being honored in Germany with the Steiger Award.

The queen received the distinction, created in 2005 as a private initiative, in the town of Hattingen at a gala during which she was honored for her role in the fight against Alzheimerís.

In its 10th edition, the Steiger Award ceremony also acknowledged Friday in different categories the producer and composer Quincy Jones, astronaut Buzz Aldrin, who walked on the surface of the moon with Neil Armstrong on the Apollo 11 mission, Borussia Dortmund soccer club executive Hans-Joachim Watze, and singer Ute Lemper.

Speaking in English and German, the Spanish royal recalled the almost four decades of the Queen Sofia Foundation, its social, educational, cultural and health projects, and how the Alzheimerís Project was launched in 2002 to help those suffering from the disease and their families, and in which both government and private organizations have become involved.

While expressing her gratitude, she praised the more than 1,000 volunteers who have worked for the foundation and the organizations that have collaborated on many of its projects, including the Red Cross, Unicef and Caritas.

Honored with the Steiger Award in previous years have been such distinguished personalities as Romano Prodi, Jose Manuel Durao Barroso, Jean-Claude Juncker, Boris Becker, David Frost, Richard Chamberlain, Mark Knopfler, Josep Carreras and Queen Silvia of Sweden.
