The diverse, purpose-driven people of Stanley Black & Decker share a unified passion for creating products, tools and solutions for those who make the world. Wherever you go in our company, you’ll find uncompromised devotion to performance, innovation, customer satisfaction and social responsibility.
The athletes, teams and organizations that we sponsor also embody this same devotion. Today, we are highlighting two female athletes that are outstanding examples of strength and tenacity.
A truly inspiring athlete, Nathalie McGloin Racing has cut through challenges in the face of adversity to achieve outstanding success in her motorsport career. STANLEY® is delighted to be supporting her, and her charity Spinal Track in a brand new partnership for 2017.
“Nathalie McGloin is the only female tetraplegic in the world to be racing cars. A self-confessed speed freak and adrenaline junkie, she also plays wheelchair rugby (sometimes known as ‘murderball’).
Her latest activity is wheelchair racing – she will compete in the London Marathon in 2017 and is looking to take part in the Tokyo Paralympics.”
Nathalie commented on her recent race at Silverstone historic GP saying in her blog:
"I spent the time in between qualifying and race one in my garage with my mechanics getting some good photos of my fantastic new Stanley livery wrap and getting prepared for my first race. I had a lot of support in my garage…A disappointing end to our first weekend racing together as Lodge Sports Racing but we win as a team and we lose as a team.”
An inspiration to racers everywhere, BLACK+DECKER is proud to be supporting Holly Shelton as she accelerates her professional career. We’re looking forward to seeing her take to the tracks and following her progress and success.
