TBI Info’s employees organized a fund raising campaign, to aid with the travel expenses of the young athletes.

Our company supported the Bulgarian team that competed in horseback riding discipline at Special Olympics 2015 – the biggest world event for people with disabilities.

The idea for fund raising came from TBI Info’s employees who set up the initiative and donated the collected amount of money to help with travel expenses of the kids with disabilities that were competing in horseback riding discipline.

They came home with total of 8 medals competing with tough competition of 135 horseback riders from all over the world. Veliko Velikov made us proud twice, hearing the Bulgarian anthem with two gold medals, Hristo Dimitrov won gold and bronze, Iliana Tzvetanova has two silver and one bronze pieces and Radena Angelova with one bronze medal.

23 participants in total took part in different disciplines at Special Olympics World Games that took place 21 July- 02 August in Los Angeles, US.

Special Olympics 2015 proved that, although excluded from the regular sporting calendars in Bulgaria, the young athletes have determination and well worthy sportsman spirit.

Seven times in total our athletes and the public heard the National anthem of Bulgaria, during the gold medal ceremony for our medalists.

Our team returned with 22 silver medals in total and 15 bronze.
