During the most recently held Special Olympics World Summer Games in Los Angeles, FINIS donated boxes of Swim Snorkels, Agility Paddles and pull buoys to the swimmers competing in the pool and open water. The products were immediately used and greatly appreciated.

The Special Olympics have always been near and dear to me,” said John Mix, Chief Executive Officer of FINIS.

So when the possibility of teaming up with them for the World Games came up, I was all in. The World Games are an inspiring event unlike many others, it’s a unique experience and a great opportunity for anyone to be a part of. The Special Olympics is one of the greatest organizations in the world and we here at FINIS are so proud to be a part of it and we are excited to build on our partnership together in the future,”
