RL: Country Manager Digicel – Sean Latty, Special Olympians and Marketing Manager Digicel – Sharez Laws
ST. KITTS (February 17th, 2010) – The Bigger, Better network was once again applauded this year for their continued commitment towards the Special Olympians in the Federation of St. Kitts and Nevis. In an intimate ceremony this morning at the Silver Jubilee Stadium, Country Manager – Sean Latty and Marketing Manger – Sharez Laws handed over a cheque in the amount of fifteen thousand dollars ($15,000) to Mr. Lloyd Lazar, representing the members of the organizing committee and a group of Special Olympians.
“Digicel has been a major sponsor of Special Olympics since its launch in St Kitts and Nevis. This year marks our 5th year of sponsorship. We appreciate and recognize that tournaments can be an expensive venture, and as such we are happy to make this valuable donation to help make this trip possible. Of all the sponsorships that we do, this ranks as one of the most important, rewarding and fulfilling, as it gives Digicel an opportunity to give children an experience that they would not be able to have under normal circumstances. We at Digicel would like to wish the Special Olympians success in Puerto Rico and we are confident that they will come back with a strong medal haul and invaluable experience,” said Country Manager, Digicel St. Kitts and Nevis – Sean Latty.
Twenty eight (28) Special Olympians will be attending the Latin America invitational to be held in Puerto Rico this coming Thursday, 18th February, 2010.
“The commitment from Digicel to Special Olympics is very well appreciated. Athletes need significant support and this contribution is vital to the overall development of athletes as young people. Consistent preparations for the games also help build confidence in the athletes which will help them in the workplace and life in general,” remarked Mr. Lloyd Lazar – Permanent Secretary of Sports.
Digicel wishes the Special Olympians every success at the Latin America Invitational and echoes the sentiments in their motto, “Let me win, but if I cannot win, let me be brave in the attempt.”
