Drummond signed an agreement with the Colombian Olympic Committee and the Santa Marta District Mayor’s office to be the official sponsor of the 2017 Bolivarian Games.

The event, which begins on Saturday, November 11, is one of the most important sports events in the region. The agreement will allow Drummond to promote sports and a healthy coexistence, both key action scopes from their pillars of its Corporate Social Responsibility, through which the construction of social fabric is strengthened and increases interest for these disciplines in young adults and communities.

“This initiative allows Drummond Ltd. to support the talent and growth of athletes. We are committed to the local, regional, and national progress, and to sponsor integral development not only of the region, but also the entire country”, stated José Miguel Linares, president for Drummond Ltd. in Colombia.

For the Company, it is also relevant to support Santa Marta as the main scenario for the 4,090 athletes from 11 countries, who will compete in 45 sports disciplines that will take place in the sports complexes that were built and improved to host the competitions.

The Bolivarian Games are hosted to commemorate Simon Bolivar, the Liberator of the current republics of Bolivia, Colombia, Ecuador, Panama, Peru, and Venezuela. The first edition was carried out in 1983. This year, we celebrate the XVIII edition, and it will take place November 11-25 in Santa Marta and other cities such as Bogota, Cali, and the municipality of Cienaga, Magdalena.

Once again, Drummond Ltd, reiterates its social commitment through its participation of this event that transcends the borders of our country, and invites all the people from Santa Marta, Magdalena, and all visitors, to participate in each one of these sports activities.
