BP proudly sponsored the U.S. Paralympics Nordic Skiing Nationals, which took place Jan. 4-7 in Bozeman, Montana. The company also supported the U.S. Paralympics Swimming Can-Am Open, held Dec. 15-17 in Charlotte, North Carolina, and the U.S. Paralympics Track Cycling National Championships, held Dec. 1-3 in Colorado Springs, Colorado.

 

In addition to supporting the U.S. national teams for Nordic skiing, swimming and cycling, BP’s sponsorship also helps cover the training and travel costs of the U.S. national teams for track and field, alpine skiing and snowboarding.

 

Upcoming competitions include the U.S. Paralympics Track Cycling Open (Feb. 8-11 in Carson City, California); the U.S. Paralympics Alpine Skiing National Championships (March 25-April 7 in Mammoth, California); and the U.S. Paralympics Snowboarding National Championships (March 25-April 7 in Copper Mountain, Colorado).

 

In 2015, BP became the first-ever corporate partner of the U.S. Olympic Committee to sponsor an athlete roster featuring more Paralympians than Olympians. Two years prior to that, BP donated $1 million to help build the Ted Stevens Sports Services Center on the U.S. Olympic Training Center campus in Colorado Springs and to support existing Paralympic programs.

 

In addition, BP is a partner of the International Paralympic Committee, as well as a sponsor of the National Paralympic Committees in several countries around the world.Building a stronger AmericaOver the past five years, BP has donated $130 million to U.S. community programs.
