Sarasota, Florida (PRWEB) May 02, 2014
As part of its ongoing commitment to give back to the community, the Mallard Law Firm announced today it will be a silver sponsor for the Special Olympics Florida – Sarasota County. As a sponsor, the Mallard Law Firm is helping to give people with disabilities in Sarasota an opportunity to compete against other athletes throughout Florida in the State Summer Games on May 16-17, 2014, in Orlando (1).
The Special Olympics Florida helps to shatter stereotypes about people living with disabilities (2). There is nothing like sports and games to bring communities throughout Florida together and encourage people without intellectual disabilities to create a culture of acceptance and inclusion (2). About 3,100 athletes, coaches, and family members will arrive in Orlando for the two-day event, where athletes who have trained in tennis, volleyball, soccer, cycling, bocce, and track and field will compete (2).
“We are proud to be able to help give those living with disabilities in our community a chance to train and compete in the games they love,” said Damian Mallard, founder of the Mallard Law Firm. “By supporting the Special Olympics Florida in Sarasota County, we are helping give back to the disabled community whom we have worked with on civil cases to defend their rights,” added Mallard.
Promoting the ideals of inclusion and acceptance through sports, Special Olympics Florida allows people with intellectual and developmental disabilities who are eight years old and older to participate in year-round sports training and competitive events at no cost (3). In Sarasota County alone, there are currently over 530 athletes throughout the county who train and compete in 14 different sports (3).
