As a company, we take social responsibility seriously. Support and solidarity are especially important in difficult times, such as those we are all currently experiencing due to the COVID 19 pandemic and its consequences.
That's why we renew our support for the Special Olympics Switzerland Foundation, which helps people with intellectual disabilities develop through sport. Its initiatives promote self-esteem, physical fitness, self-reliance, and the courage to try new things.
Special Olympics is the world’s largest sporting movement for people with intellectual disabilities and is now represented in over 169 countries. The organization was founded in the USA in 1968 by Eunice Kennedy-Shriver († 2009), the sister of US president John F. Kennedy.
The Special Olympics Switzerland Foundation exists since 1995. It was launched by the Disabled Sports Association (PluSport), parents’ associations and dedicated business and sports personalities.
