Special Olympics Sweden

After launching ‘Funkisfonden’ during 2019, an initiative to inspire more people with intellectual disabilities to become physically active, Danir and Sigma Group have expanded their commitment to become the main sponsor of Special Olympics Sweden, and sponsor of the Swedish Parasport Association.

The sponsorship extends from 2020 and three years on, and Danir’s aim, is to continue the work of inspiring even more people with intellectual disabilities to start with a physical activity or sport. Part of the sponsorship is to continue the successful work with sports days in special needs schools; Special Olympics School Days. Since the start in 2015, thousands of pupils with intellectual disabilities, have been given the opportunity to try sports every year. The Special Olympics School Days introduce the pupils to an active life in a fun and easy way. Everyone participates according to their own capacity and the local sports clubs that participate during the day contribute to minimizing the step to becoming physically active in their spare time.
