BC Special Olympics

BC Special Olympics

This year, we are proud to be a Bronze Sponsor for the BC Summer Special Olympics. Special Olympics BC provides sports programs and competitions that help people with intellectual disabilities celebrate personal achievement and gain confidence, skills, and friendships.

Just like the Olympics, Special Olympics BC has a four-year competition cycle for both summer and winter sports. This year, the Summer Olympic Games are being held on July 6-8 in Kamloops. Not only are we getting involved at a sponsorship level, we are also committing to the Draft an Athlete program. A donation of $500 will fund an athlete’s travel, accommodation, meals, and competition costs, so that they can fully experience the Games. We are committed to sending at least 3 athletes to compete in Kamloops.

We know how important sport is – it has the power to bring together communities, both large and small. That’s why we’re supporting this worthy cause, and invite you to do the same. We are challenging others in our industry to show their commitment to sport, and Draft an Athlete (or two… or more!). With every $500 donation that you make to this program, you will change someone’s life.

To take up our challenge, send an email to caitlin@specialolympics.bc.ca for more information. Don’t forget to let us what you’re doing on social media by using #EngineersGive.
