As the flame danced gracefully atop the torch, it signified more than just the commencement of the Special Olympics World Summer Games 2023; it symbolized hope, determination, and the indomitable human spirit.
The torch run and send-off ceremony for the athletes of Special Olympics Bharat, held on 8th June 2023 at Jawaharlal Nehru Stadium in Delhi, was a monumental event that brought together government dignitaries, celebrities, corporate supporters like Herbalife, and the real stars – the athletes.
The torch is not just a symbol; it is a declaration that these athletes are here to shine their light, defy odds, and inspire millions. Each stride they took with the torch was a stride towards a more inclusive and understanding society.
Herbalife, a global health and wellness company, was among the torchbearers in this initiative. By extending its partnership with Special Olympics Bharat, Herbalife is lighting the way for these athletes, not just through sponsorship but by ensuring they are well-nourished and ready for the challenges ahead.
As the torch makes its way to Berlin for the Special Olympics World Summer Games, it carries with it the dreams and aspirations of every athlete who has dared to dream.
