Special Olympics Arizona, State Forty Eight Collaborate for New T-Shirt Design

$5 of every shirt sold will be donated to SOAZ

Special Olympics Arizona and Chandler-based apparel company State Forty Eight have collaborated to create a limited edition Special Olympics Arizona-themed t-shirt that will benefit SOAZ and its more than 25,000 athletes statewide.

The design, created in partnership with Special Olympics Arizona, features the SOAZ logo and “Play Unified” messaging on the front, along with #WeAreSOAZ on the back. Shirts are available now and can be purchased online at www.StateFortyEight.com.


“We are so excited to be partnering with State Forty Eight for this limited edition shirt,” said Jamie Heckerman, President and CEO of Special Olympics Arizona. “It just goes to show what great support we have here in the local community and we can’t thank State Forty Eight enough for including us as part of their product line and for giving back to Special Olympics Arizona.”

Founded in 2013 in Chandler, State Forty Eight was born out of a passion and appreciation for the state of Arizona. More than just an apparel line, State Forty Eight represents a lifestyle, a sense of community and is an expression of pride. From sports fans and outdoor explorers to the more fashion-forward, the homegrown brand offers gear for all that is both stylish and comfortable.

“Special Olympics Arizona’s dedication to our community members with intellectual disabilities is inspiring, and the work they do to better the lives of these individuals is important,” said Michael Spangenberg, CEO and Co-Founder of State Forty Eight. “It’s an honor to be collaborating with them.”

The purpose of Special Olympics Arizona is to empower children and adults with intellectual disabilities to live healthy, fulfilling and meaningful lives. We realize our vision of acceptance and inclusion through health, leadership and advocacy programs, as well as our mission to provide year-round sports training and athletic competition in a variety of Olympic-style sports for children and adults with intellectual disabilities, giving them continuing opportunities to develop physical fitness, demonstrate courage, experience joy and participate in a sharing of gifts, skills and friendship with their families, other Special Olympics athletes and the community.
