“It takes a Team to Change a Life” This phrase couldn’t be more true. MediPal® is a proud supporter of the San Diego Region for the Special Olympics. Want to find that one-team spirit? You’ll find it with every athlete, every coach and every volunteer. Together they believe that they are making a difference and they are, one life at-a-time.
Special Olympics San Diego provides year-round sports training and competition in a variety of Olympic-type sports for people with intellectual disabilities—at no cost to the athletes or their families. Special Olympics gives these individuals continuing opportunities to develop physical fitness, demonstrate courage, experience joy, and participate in a sharing of gifts, skills, and friendship with their community.
To help them celebrate the Special Olympics World Games, MediPal® Inc will be donating $2 for every MediPal Emergency Seatbelt ID sold through their special retail offer through August of 2016.
“We’re proud to help celebrate with this great organization” says Kathryn Turner, President and CEO of MediPal® Inc. “We know from first hand experience that it does take a team to change a life. We live it everyday with our precious daughter.”
