ROCKVILLE, Md.- June 2, 2011 – Disabled Sports USA (DSUSA), one of the largest sporting organizations for people with physical disabilities, officially launched its new logo today.
The new logo is simple and contemporary in design with an icon illustrating movement and action, which is reflective of the DSUSA programs and participants. It retains its vibrant red and blue colors.
“The new logo reinforces DSUSA’s commitment to providing opportunities for an active and healthy lifestyle for people with disabilities, through participation in sports and recreational activities,” said Bob Meserve, president of DSUSA and an active wheelchair user, adaptive sport participant and athlete.
The previous logo was created in the mid-’90s and has served the organization for more than a decade. During that period, DSUSA has expanded its programs and services to more than 100 community-based chapters operating in 37 states. More than 60,000 youths and adults participate in sports, recreation, and educational programs annually.
“Helping people with disabilities achieve an active and healthy lifestyle rebuilds fitness and self- confidence and provides the basis for success in life.” said Meserve. “It is in fact realizing our motto, ‘If I can do this, I can do anything! SM‘”
