Cox Enterprises has been a proud advocate and friend to Special Olympics Georgia for 13 years through year-round financial and volunteer support at our competitions and events. Cox Enterprises team members and their families cheer on the athletes during the competitions, lend a hand with whatever is needed, and make the awards ceremonies memorable for each athlete. In addition to supporting the State Winter and Summer Games, Cox Enterprises is also a Presenting Sponsor of Over The Edge and provides volunteer assistance at year-round local competitions.
“At Cox Enterprises, what makes us different also binds us together. We are connected by a core company value of community outreach that propels us to get involved and make a difference,” says Michele Blondheim, Executive Director, Community Relations, Cox Automotive (a division of Cox Enterprises). “No matter what the cause, we know our efforts go a long way towards improving the lives of others. Because there’s a common thread that connects us all and weaves the very fabric of our community. At Cox Enterprises, that common thread defines what we stand for as a company and who we are as individuals.”
“Cox Enterprises truly values our partnership with Special Olympics Georgia. Our team members love any and every opportunity to volunteer at the State Winter and Summer Games, as well as local events including bocce ball and track and field. Special Olympics games are a favorite – we can all identify with working towards a goal and celebrating moments of triumph. Our volunteers become cheerleaders, confidants and shoulders to lean on. Seeing smiles on the athletes’ faces, sharing a high-five, and encouraging them to work harder next time keeps us coming back for more. Our company is proud to partner with such a respected and trusted organization,” says Jennifer Bronner, Senior Manager, Community Relations, Cox Automotive.
Thank you Cox Enterprises for believing in SOGA’s mission, for believing in our athletes, and for helping our athletes realize and reach their potential!
