Special Olympics and Kerry Group launch two-year partnership


Special Olympics is delighted to announce a new two-year partnership with Kerry Group which will focus on athlete leadership, fundraising and volunteering in Ireland, Great Britain, Netherlands and Poland.

Kerry Group—the world's largest taste and nutrition company—will be among our supporters for the Special Olympics Summer World Games next year in Abu Dhabi. Additionally, over the next two years, many of Kerry Group's 24,000 employees will also volunteer in Special Olympics programmes.

Speaking at the launch of the partnership, Mary Davis, CEO of Special Olympics International said, "Kerry Group is an ideal partner for Special Olympics, as the organisation's DNA very much focuses on championing the rights and equality for all individuals."

Edmond Scanlon, CEO of Kerry Group, added, "I am delighted to have this opportunity to work closely with Special Olympics and their wide network of athletes, families and volunteers."
