– There is real magic in sport. It can bring together people no matter how they differ. I am happy to join the marvellous team of Special Olympics Poland. I will do my best as the ambassador, just as on the racing track. What’s most important for me here? What I want to contribute to is youth’s increasingly more open attitude to people with intellectual disabilities. They really deserve it! , Nadolski said.
You can see Kacper Nadolski in the latest edition of the campaign “#PlayTogether because we are equal” next to Anna Lewandowska, Paulina Krupińska – Karpiel, Robert Lewandowski, Tomasz Wolny and Jakub Wesołowski. The goal of the campaign is to show how much athletes from Special Olympics Poland and the organisation’s ambassadors have in common. The cooperation culminated in a joint video and photos that express the ideas behind Special Olympics, that is acceptance, inclusion and respect.
– Kacper Nadolski is a very talented young person who, next to his obvious achievements, has a lot of positive spirit around him, the drive to change the world, and a lot of social sensitivity. We are happy to welcome him on board of Special Olympics Poland, said General Director of Special Olympics Poland, Joanna Styczeń-Lasocka.
Next to the Olympics and Paralympics, the Special Olympics constitutes one of the pillars of the world Olympic movement. Special Olympics is officially recognised by the International Olympics Committee. Its goal is to combat discrimination against people with intellectual disabilities and promote inclusion through sports. Its athletes regularly practise and compete in professional events, also internationally. They demonstrate enthusiasm, commitment and perseverance in pursuing their goals.
Special Olympics Poland is a huge sports movement, bringing together over 17 thousand athletes, 1.5 thousand coaches and 4 thousand volunteers from 507 clubs and 18 Regional Offices, managed by the National Office. The athletes are supported and motivated along the way by the Team of Ambassadors, appointed by the President of Special Olympics Poland, Anna Lewandowska. The Ambassadors are: Robert Lewandowski, Kacper Nadolski, Joanna Jędrzejczyk, Paulina Krupińska-Karpiel, Ewelina Lisowska, Łukasz Koszarek, Tomasz Wolny and Jakub Wesołowski. They offer their support at each stage of preparations and events.
Special Olympics Poland is supported by the Polish Ministry of Culture and National Heritage and by the State Fund for Rehabilitation of Disabled People. The general sponsor is Tauron Polska Energia SA, and the main sponsor is Huawei. This year, Special Olympics Poland was joined by another partner, OSHEE, which supports the athletes with beverages.
