Special Olympics announced that WWE will once again support the Special Olympics mission to change the world through sports by sponsoring the 2018 Special Olympics USA Games.
WWE will promote the upcoming USA Games through its global media assets including the WWE Network, TV, digital and social media, as well as during upcoming WWE live events held throughout the U.S. To support the road to the USA Games, WWE will be highlighting Special Olympics through the eyes of three athletes: Katie Millar, a Powerlifter from Illinois; C.J. Piantieri, a Powerlifter from Florida; and Joshua Oakley, a Track and Field athlete from Connecticut. Additionally, WWE Superstars will be supporting all Special Olympics athletes at the USA Games by conducting daily autograph signings, medal presentations and attending the Opening Ceremonies.
"We're thrilled to partner with WWE and appreciate their commitment to Special Olympics and to furthering the ideals of inclusion," said Beth Knox, President and CEO of the 2018 Special Olympics USA Games. "We know how much our athletes admire WWE Superstars and I know meeting them will be one of the many highlights of their week in Seattle."
