U.S. President Barack Obama, First Lady Michelle Obama Will Serve as Honorary Chairs of the 2015 Special Olympics World Summer Games
Los Angeles, CA, July 30, 2013 – Mayor Eric Garcetti today extended his support for the 2015 Special Olympics World Games in Los Angeles and announced that President Barack Obama and First Lady Michelle Obama have committed to serving as Honorary Chairs of the World Games. Mayor Garcetti and Governor Brown are serving as Honorary Hosts.
“When 7,000 Special Olympics athletes from 170 countries march into the Coliseum in two years, the spotlight will not only be on Los Angeles – a city that stands for diversity and inclusion – but will shine brightly on the mission of Special Olympics in highlighting the talents of those with intellectual disabilities,” Mayor Garcetti said. “Along with my support and that of the City of Los Angeles, I am proud and honored to acknowledge the commitment of the President and First Lady to this great event. I am also excited that this unique event will be a major contributor to our city’s economy, generating more than $400 million in economic impact.”
In a video statement, President Obama said: “Michelle and I are so honored to serve as Co-chairs of this inspiring event. Special Olympics has a tradition that started more than 50 years ago…at Eunice Kennedy Shriver’s house. Today, that simple day camp has grown into one of the biggest sporting competitions in the world for people with intellectual disabilities. The athletes coming to these Games represent the grit and determination that’s at the very root of the American spirit.”
