Sporting performance

WERIT is a committed sponsor of the Special Olympics in Austria

Integrating people with mental disabilities into society and making them feel "strong" by way of their sporting performance – that is the primary task of the not-for-profit association SO Austria. WERIT actively supports this objective by way of a number of sponsoring activities.

Currently, more than 2.5 million children, adolescents and adults have the opportunity to improve their motor skills and strengthen their physical fitness through exercise, games and sports. People with mental disabilities are able to increase their self-confidence by participating in sports activities, as well as help prevent any organ-based deficiencies that they might suffer from. As part of the Special Olympics, people with mental disabilities over the age of 8 learn how to improve their social relationships, increase their tolerance levels and improve their communication potential, all through sport.

 

Competition without hindrance through global support

At a global level, training sessions and competitions in 26 different Olympics sports are held throughout the year in 180 nations. This means that a large number of people are able to take part in this concept and compete with other people who have "similar" disabilities.

In order for this whole concept to function as one, the not-for-profit association also relies on the activities of various honorary members. Special Olympics does not aim to make a profit and is financed by donations , sponsor contributions, membership fees, income from events and other types of funding. WERIT also invests in this social project so to as to ensure there will still be such sporting activities held in future as well.
