In 2017, BPTT renewed its commitment to support the Trinidad and Tobago Paralympic Committee (TTPC). The company officially extended its partnership with the Trinidad and Tobago Paralympic Committee from 2017 through the 2020 Paralympic Games to be held in Tokyo, Japan.
“At BPTT, we believe that the human spirit is the most powerful energy of all. This energy within is powerfully showcased through Trinidad and Tobago’s Para athletes,” said Giselle Thompson, Vice President Corporate Operations, BPTT.
Para World Championship Bronze medalist Nyoshia Cain and Para World Championship Gold medalist Akeem Stewart have also been showcased in a multi-media advertising campaign in 2018 sharing what ignited their energy within. “I am extremely proud to be a part of this global campaign and hope that those viewing the ads will be inspired to do their very best, no matter what,” said Nyoshia Cain.
To support these Para athletes in their development journey, BPTT also supported their skills development at the Michael Johnson Performance Academy. Speaking in a video filmed at the MJP Academy in McKinny Texas, Akeem Stewart expressed appreciation to BPTT for the opportunity to further enhance his skills.
“We hope that through this partnership and the accompanying advertising campaign that BPTT can help inspire the next generation of athletes to move past any challenge and to be the very best they can be,” said Thompson.
