The pandemic has shown that Special Olympics BC’s year-round programs and empowering community matter now more so than ever. For many athletes with intellectual disabilities, Special Olympics is the only place where they have friends, where they are active and healthy, where they are first and foremost seen for their abilities and talents. For many of them, the pain of exclusion was already far too familiar.
Thank you to everyone who supported the 2021 New Car Dealers Foundation / Special Olympics BC Auction! This online event ran from May 27 to June 2, and the funds raised will have a lasting impact by helping Special Olympics BC reopen all of our sport and youth programs in 55 communities throughout our province.
B.C.’s New Car Dealers
Since 1984, the New Car Dealers Association of BC has been committed to supporting Special Olympics BC through the New Car Dealers Foundation of BC. These dedicated supporters contribute to the empowerment, health, and skill development of our athletes through several important initiatives.
Through more than three decades, the New Car Dealers Foundation / Special Olympics BC Auction has raised over $5.4 million to support SOBC’s life-changing year-round sport programs for people with intellectual disabilities, and the empowering work of the New Car Dealers Foundation.
Sincere thanks to the New Car Dealers Association of BC and Dealers throughout the province for helping Special Olympics BC enrich lives and create inclusive communities through the power and joy of sport.
