Supporting the Special Olympics

Nicolas Herzovich

Special Olympics Costa Rica is dedicated to empowering individuals with intellectual disabilities to become physically fit, productive and respected members of society.

This worldwide NPO has grown from a few hundred athletes to more than 3.5 million athletes in 170 countries, providing year-round sports training, athletic competitions and other related programmes and is dedicated to improving the quality of lives of people with intellectual disabilities.

Aspen Caricam supported the Special Olympics programme through a sports festival. The beneficiaries included 220 children and their parents who each received a Cofal branded t-shirt, water bottle and towel. Employees served as volunteers at the event and hosted creative activities for the children who thoroughly enjoyed the opportunity.
