Special Olympics Washington Partners with Caravel Marketing to Continue the Inclusion Revolution Developed During Special Olympics USA Games

In an effort to build on the partnerships developed during the recent 2018 Special Olympics USA Games, Special Olympics Washington has enlisted the expertise of Caravel Marketing to engage community and corporate organizations in continuing their support of the Special Olympics mission in Washington. Caravel is a Seattle-based company specializing in partnership marketing that was responsible for helping the USA Games generate more than $16 million in sponsorship revenue to support the weeklong event.

“We have a unique opportunity to grow our relationships with the amazing companies here in Washington who demonstrated their leadership and passion during the USA Games for our ideals of acceptance and inclusion through sport,” said Dave Lenox, President and CEO of Special Olympics Washington. “We are thrilled to have Caravel Marketing continue on as a valued partner during this process.”

Through programming in sports, health, education and community building, Special Olympics is changing the lives of people with intellectual disabilities. Special Olympics is able to remove barriers and stigmas that people with intellectual disabilities face, and to share with the community the gifts and talents they possess. Everyone who comes in touch with Special Olympics is impacted in a way that helps them strive to achieve their personal best.

Caravel Marketing is a national sponsorship firm uniquely qualified to support the Special Olympics’ initiatives. The company was founded in 2009 to provide sponsorship services to large-scale events and entertainment properties, nonprofits, associations, corporations, sports teams and government agencies.

“As was evident during the USA Games, Special Olympics brings such valuable opportunities to corporate and community partners,” said Paula Beadle, President of Caravel Marketing. “It is a privilege to continue our work with the Special Olympics movement by connecting companies who align with the mission and engage with the community in meaningful ways”
