Special Olympics Germany
The partnership with Special Olympics Germany (SOD) initiated by Carmen Würth has been an integral part of Würth’s social commitment for 10 years. Over 800 employees have been involved in the summer and winter games of this extraordinary sports organization for people with mental and multiple disabilities. This commitment has become so popular that Würth helpers are now selected by lot. Seventy volunteers from Würth were present to provide support at the 2018 national summer games in Kiel. During the table tennis competitions, 325 SOD athletes required assistance and the volunteers also acted as referees at the tables. This involvement was appreciated by the athletes, helpers and all participants. 2018 was a particularly important year for Special Olympics Germany: The decision was made to hold the 2023 World Games of Special Olympics in Berlin!
