Support for Unified Champion Schools
Hasbro has been involved in the Special Olympics movement for years through local support in Rhode Island and expanded its support globally in 2016 to include grant funding for 11 Programs in eight countries around the world including four states in the United States. Hasbro’s support will help Special Olympics grow its Unified Schools programming into new schools contributing to Special Olympics’ strategic goal of increasing access to Unified Sports in schools. Additionally, in the United States, Hasbro will be awarding Be Fearless Be Kind Awards to students who are leading inclusion efforts in their schools and exemplify empathy, compassion, and courage.
