Para sports and JYSK
- JYSK has supported Para sports since 1989, when JYSK became main sponsor of Parasport Denmark.
- Today, JYSK supports Para sports in 10 different countries across JYSK Nordic and Franchise: Finland, Sweden, Norway, Denmark, Czech Republic, Slovakia, Romania, Canada, Iceland and the Faroe Islands.
During Store Manager Days in September, more than 100 Finnish JYSK colleagues tried out wheelchair rugby, sitting volley and goalball.
As part of a close cooperation between JYSK Finland and the Finnish Paralympic Committee, JYSK colleagues were invited to try out different Paralympic sports in the Finnish city of Tampere.
For JYSK the cooperation with the Finnish Paralympic Committee is more than just a sponsorship. It is a choice based on our corporate values and it is about commitment, true partnership and working together.
The colleagues where challenged in different sports: goalball, wheelchair rugby, sitting volleyball and blind football. See the pictures and read about the sports below.
