Toyota and Special Olympics expand partnership to Europe
Toyota Motor Europe and Special Olympics Europe Eurasia have announced a three year partnership, starting in 2020, to support Special Olympics grass-roots inclusive programming and sporting events across the region.
Special Olympics is a global movement for inclusion of children and adults with intellectual disabilities. Its aim is to create inclusive communities around the world, where every person is accepted and welcomed, regardless of ability.
With over six million athletes and Unified partners across over 190 countries, the organisation is supported by over one million coaches and volunteers. In Europe-Eurasia, it covers 58 countries and has over 500,000 participating athletes.
«Our partnership with the Special Olympics represents an opportunity to extend the Start Your Impossible story which we have already begun with the Olympics and Paralympics movements. Our employees and the dealer network are invited to volunteer and support the athletes across the region» Johan van Zyl, President and Ceo of Toyota Motor Europe said.
