Digicel help Special Olympics

Cayman’s Digicel network has shown its commitment to the Special Olympics programme here by making a substantial cash donation.

At a training session held at the Truman Bodden Sports Complex last week, Victor Corcoran and his marketing team joined in the team warm up session and handed over a cheque for $10,000 to Nicole Thompson, head coach of bocce, who represents the members of the organising committee and a group of Special Olympics athletes.

The enthusiastic group took time-out of their busy schedule of preparing for the Summer World Games in Greece next month, to chat and interact with the Digicel team. They were observed practicing and putting the finishes touches on their preparations.

In addition to the financial donation, Digicel staff volunteered their services to assist in athletics, aquatics and bocce (a game of Italian origin similar to lawn bowling played with wooden balls on a long narrow court) during the local games last weekend at the Truman Bodden Sports Complex.

“Digicel has been a major sponsor of Special Olympics throughout the Caribbean since launch and we are proud to add our commitment to Special Olympics here in Cayman,” said Corcoran, CEO of Digicel Cayman.

“As the athletes prepare to compete at the 2011 Summer World Games in Greece, we appreciate and recognize that tournaments of this nature can be an expensive venture, as such we are happy to make this donation to help make this trip possible.

“This ranks as one of the most important, rewarding and fulfilling sponsorships we have, as it gives us at Digicel an opportunity to give children an experience that they would not be able to have under normal circumstances.”
