Microsoft recently released a new commercial for its Microsoft Cloud technology, starring Lions partner Special Olympics and Special Olympics athletes proudly wearing the Lions logo.
Through the Special Olympics-Lions Clubs International Opening Eyes program, Lions have helped provide free vision screenings for 350,000 athletes and prescription eye wear to 110,000 athletes. This incredible partnership began in 2001 and continues to expand so that more Lions can help more people with intellectual disabilities realize and achieve their athletic dreams.
