“The Paralympic brand has the potential to be one of the most transformational and powerful on earth, impacting and improving the lives of the world’s one billion persons with disabilities,” said Craig Spence, the International Paralympic Committee’s chief marketing and communications officer. “To achieve this, it is important that more people are exposed to and engage with the Paralympic Movement, understand its purpose, and recognize its transformational impact in changing the world for the better.”
