Mitsubishi Electric has renewed its partnership with Special Olympics GB for a further two years. Both organisations have committed to building upon the existing mutually beneficial relationship to help transform the lives of people with intellectual disabilities through sport.
Special Olympics GB is a non-profit organisation and the largest provider of year-round, sports coaching and athletic competition.
An official partner since 2018, Mitsubishi Electric has been active in supporting a wide variety of events, from last year’s Special Olympics World Games in Abu Dhabi and the 40th Anniversary Games in Stirling in August 2018, to the smaller individual regional events with employees actively encouraged to volunteer.
Moving forward, the partnership will focus on delivering a range of joint initiatives which underpin, promote and reiterate the values and objectives of both organisations. From unified sports events – both virtual and physical – to providing platforms for athlete’s stories to be shared, increased interaction and engagement with the Special Olympics GB Athlete Leadership Team, and various volunteering opportunities being offered, the organisations will work together to deliver maximum engagement and purpose.
