Special Olympics Illinois has partnered with Airborn Media to use drones for aerial photography at events.
According to the organization, the Chicago-area company will capture fresh views of competitors, spectators and various Special Olympics Illinois events.
“We are proud to announce our partnership with Special Olympics Illinois and share our expertise and the latest technology to help tell the story of the brave and inspiring athletes,” says Brendan Stewart, co-founder of Airborn Media.
Special Olympics Illinois is a nonprofit organization that offers year-round training and competition in 19 sports for over 20,000 athletes with intellectual disabilities and more than 18,000 young athletes ages 2-7 with and without intellectual disabilities.
‘The images captured will provide a whole new perspective of our events and will be a great asset to our media library,” adds Corinne Zollars, senior director of marketing and communications at Special Olympics Illinois.
