There is genuinely no spectacle that comes close to that of the Olympics. Every four years, families worldwide come together to watch their nation’s athletes compete in a unifying, gratifying contest. The Summer and Winter Olympics are some of the highest viewed, most sponsored events on the planet. This means its athletes have strong financial backing and are given the country’s full support in their athletic endeavors, starting from a young age.
Though many people have heard of the Special Olympics and support it in name, the amount of viewership it gets pales compared to the standard Olympic games. Because of this, the Special Olympics gets fewer sponsorships, and its athletes have fewer opportunities to develop and demonstrate their skills. According to Special Olympics International, for every American with an intellectual disability who is allowed to train their skills, 13 others have to “wait on the sideline.”
We here at Pegram Superior Insurance want to provide our support to the Special Olympics in light of the upcoming Winter Special Olympics. To demonstrate this, for every person you recommend to our agency to receive a no-obligation quote, we will donate $10 to the Special Olympics in your name! This money will go towards meaningful training opportunities, inclusive health services, and social inclusion programs for athletes with disabilities nationwide.
Let’s all show our support and watch the Winter Special Olympics starting on January 22nd!
