Robic Loves the Special Olympics

June 12, 2013

At Robic, we don’t just make timers and pedometers in Oxford, CT, we live here as well.  This is our community, our home, and we take our commitment to the area seriously.  While we support a number of different local and national charities, we have an especially close relationship with the Special Olympics. This amazing global organization has been changing lives and attitudes for almost fifty years. According to their mission statement, the Special Olympics were “founded to provide year-round sports training and athletic competition in a variety of Olympic-type sports for children and adults with intellectual disabilities.”

It is a truly inspiring goal and we have done our best to support it here in Connecticut and around the world. In the past, we have donated a wide variety of products like stopwatches for track and swimming events to the organization as well as our time and support. We are also thrilled and proud to be next-door neighbors with one of the organization’s regional offices and training centers in Southbury, CT.

To everyone at Robic, the Special Olympics is more than just a charity, it is a part of our community. The inspiring children and adults who take part in all the organization’s events are more than just amazing athletes, they are our neighbors, our friends, and our family. We get a great deal of joy out of helping out in anyway we can, it really is something you need to feel for yourself. The next time you or your organization is considering donating your time and money to a worthwhile cause, we cannot say enough about the Special Olympics. The experience is best summed up by their inspiring motto,

“Let me WIN. But if I cannot win, let me be BRAVE in the attempt.”
