“Special Olympics has a life-changing impact on everyone who experiences it, both on and off the competition fields,” said Michael Rouse, Vice President of Diversity, Philanthropy and Community affairs for Toyota Motor Sales, U.S.A., Inc. “Education is one of Toyota’s core philanthropic priorities, and the World Games is an inspiring event that unites the international community around the values of inclusion and acceptance. We look forward to sharing the power of the Games with as many people as possible and are proud to have a role in supporting this global event.”

Toyota’s participation in the Games includes the use of 400 vehicles by LA2015, the organising committee for the Special Olympics World Games, in addition to dealer involvement across the U.S, activating the power of employee volunteerism at competition centres, athlete village sponsorships and communication activities which support education and advocacy for people with intellectual disabilities. While this marks Toyota’s first time sponsoring the World Games, the company has built a 28-year-long relationship with the Special Olympics movement in Southern California.

“It’s an honour to have Toyota, a world-class brand, join the LA2015 effort as our official automotive partner,” said Patrick McClenahan, President and CEO of LA2015. “Toyota’s enthusiasm for the World Games will have a lasting impact as we jointly celebrate the courage, determination and joy of our athletes.”

The event also included the first gathering and public introduction of the World Games Global Messengers, 15 Special Olympic athletes selected from 11 different counties across Southern California. The athletes, who participate in a combined 12 sports ranging from judo to volleyball, will represent the LA2015 organising committee at events from now through the World Games next July.

“Toyota South Africa would like to congratulate Toyota USA for the partnership with the Special Olympics. We are positive that the partnership will be beneficial to all the parties involved. We wish both Toyota USA and the LA2015 organising committee best of luck,” says Glenn Crompton, Vice President of Marketing at Toyota South Africa Motors.
