Jul. 26 /CSRwire/ - The National Sports Center for the Disabled (NSCD) has awarded Texaco and Texaco Xpress Lube, its annual Bold Tracks Award for 2000. Each year, the NSCD honors businesses that have made an outstanding contribution to supporting recreation for people with a disability.
Texaco began supporting the NSCD in the late 1980s. In 1998, Texaco Xpress Lube owners from the Denver area in Colorado formed a partnership with the lubricants division of Equilon Enterprises LLC to begin providing joint support for the Center. Ed Rhodus, Texaco Xpress Lube retailer and chairman of the National Texaco Xpress Lube Advisory Council, represented the Denver Texaco Xpress Lube facilities in accepting the Bold Tracks Award. Texaco Xpress Lube is the second largest automotive branded quick lube chain in the U.S.
The National Sports Center for the Disabled was founded in 1970 and is currently the world's largest therapeutic sports program for the disabled. The non-profit organization annually provides over 25,000 lessons to more than 3,000 disabled children and adults from around the world. Activities undertaken by the NSCD include downhill skiing, rafting, rock climbing, hand cycling and sailing. Participants with more than 45 types of physical or mental disabilities participate in year-round NSCD programs. They benefit through physical, social, cognitive and emotional development as a result of program activities.
