The 2014 Special Olympics USA Games will be hosted by New Jersey, June 14-21, 2014.  Nearly 3,500 athletes will compete in 16 sports, supported by 1,000 coaches, 10,000 volunteers and 70,000 spectators. 

“As an employee owned business, we knew a partnership with STS would include more than just a financial boost to the Games but an emotional investment as well,” said TJ Nelligan, president & chairman of the 2014 USA Games. “STS has empowered its employees to truly become part of these Games by creating internal programs for its owner-employees and customers to personally contribute to and benefit from the company’s partnership of the 2014 USA Games.” 

As Presenting Sponsor of Athletics, STS will be recognized throughout Weaver Stadium as well as in all external communications regarding the Athletics Competition at the 2014 USA Games. Over 450 athletes will compete in track and field events during the Games. STS will be highlighting its partnership with the 2014 USA Games in much of its marketing initiatives over the next year, including in billboards and radio advertising. Weaver Stadium is a state-of-the-art venue for outdoor track and field and provides available seating for nearly 2,500 spectators. The innovative design was crafted by Don Paige, formerly the best half-miler in the world. The oval is eight lanes across, with each lane 1.22 meters in width and features an impressively long radius of 36.5 meters on the turns. It is made of durable brick red full-depth polyurethane, the safest, fastest and most comfortable surface available.

“Partnering with the 2014 Special Olympics USA Games provides STS with a unique opportunity to give back to the communities we serve by embracing the overall mission of the Special Olympics. As a 100% employee-owned New Jersey based company we’re proud to be sponsoring Athletics and look forward to supporting the athletes as they demonstrate their incredible determination and spirit to succeed,” said Bill Caulin, president of STS.
