IM Sports™ Supports The Special Olympics Through Charity
iM Sports is proud to announce that a portion of the proceeds from each online sale will be donated to the Special Olympics.
Online, April 29, 2014 (Newswire.com) - iM Sports™ was founded in 2008 by Mo Nelson and is based in Southern California. iM Sports compression sleeves are made in the USA and come in a variety of colors, styles and sizes. iM Sports helps athletes in a number of sports including baseball, basketball, cycling, football, golf, running and swimming. The sleeves are shipped worldwide from the iM Sports online storefront and are designed to provide mild continuous compression. The company's motto states that "iM Sports is dedicated to helping athletes compete-anytime-anywhere-anyplace!"
"We believe that everyone is an athlete and everyone has the right to compete where and when they want to" states Mo Nelson. "That is why we are proud to announce that we will be donating a portion of the proceeds from the sale of our compression sleeves to the Special Olympics!" says Mo. The Special Olympics has helped over four million athletes worldwide compete since 1968 and 83% of donations are spent directly on sports training for athletes. Eunice Kennedy Shriver helped to found the organization and the first Special Olympic Games were held in Chicago at Soldier Field for 1,000 participating athletes with intellectual disabilities from 26 different countries. The Special Olympics continues to be a world class charitable organization with over one million volunteers in 170 different countries.
"iM Sports will always be working towards giving back and we are grateful each and every day for our loyal customers" explains Mo. "Our efforts with the Special Olympics will continue throughout the year" concludes Mo. In addition to donations from the company, iM Sports staff members are encouraged to volunteer in their community on a monthly basis. iM Sports also supports other charities such as the Semper Fi Fund, the Wounded Warriors Project and the Breast Cancer Research Foundation. iM Sports plans to expand its donations to charities as overall sales expand.
