Duthie Power Services donates rental generators to the Special Olympics Summer Games

For over 50 years, the Special Olympics have been empowering athletes with intellectual disabilities through the joy of sport. This year’s Summer Games will be held at California State University, Long Beach, June 10th – 11th, and Duthie Power Services is once again donating portable generators to power the event’s Healthy Athletes Village. Sal Hernandez, Duthie Power’s Rentals Manager, explains, “Duthie Power has an ongoing commitment to support programs that empower our community, from food and toy drives with the Crossroads Church to keeping the Special Olympics powered up. We love that we can give back in this way.”

As the world’s largest public health organization for people with intellectual disabilities, the Special Olympics offers myriad services to athletes at this annual event. “Our Healthy Athletes Village provides athletes with everything from podiatric and vision screenings to hearing aid fittings and physical therapy care,” shares Janet Portilla, Senior Manager of Health Initiatives for Special Olympics Southern California.

The Summer Games host over 200 athletes per discipline, with the Healthy Village offering services to 600 athletes at this event alone. “One of our missions as a company is to ensure everyone has access to power when they need it, so donating portable generators to the Special Olympics is a way to fulfill our mission while supporting an incredible cause,” says Shana Duthie, Head of Sales and Marketing.

Among the services powered by Duthie’s generators are the edging machine used to make eyeglasses in the Opening Eyes section of the Healthy Village as well as the technology used for bone density screenings in the Health Promotion section. In the Special Smiles section of the village, athletes can also get fitted for mouthguards to keep them safe in competition.

“The Special Olympics is about so much more than sports,” shares Travis Yamasaki, Manager of Health initiatives at Special Olympics Southern California, “People with intellectual disabilities often don’t get the health services they need to thrive, so our Healthy Village is almost a turnkey solution for ensuring every athlete gets basic health services they need.”

The Healthy Athletes Village is open Saturday, June 10th 10am –3:30pm and Sunday, June 11th 9am – 2pm, with competitions happening across the CSULB campus all weekend. Admission to the games is free and open to the public
