STAMFORD, Conn. -- The Hospital for Special Surgery announced its sponsorship of the Hospital for Special Surgery Greenwich Cup 2016, a multi-sports series launched in partnership with Greenwich Parks and Recreation.
The Greenwich Cup encompasses a series of road races as well as swimming, biking and triathlon competitions that will take place at various locations in Greenwich during 2016.
“We are excited to be able to align HSS with these locally well-known athletic competitions under the purview of Greenwich Parks & Rec and unify these half-dozen events into an organized series,” said Westport's John Englehart, Chief Marketing Officer at HSS. “We are eager to increase public awareness of HSS in greater Fairfield County, where we have a prominent presence through our state-of-the-art Outpatient Center in Stamford at Chelsea Piers, which opened for business the beginning of 2015.”
The HSS Stamford Outpatient Center offers medical diagnosis, pre-and post-operative care, non-surgical management of injuries and joint pain, advanced MRI capabilities and other services.
“Equally important for us is that athletic competitions of this kind perfectly embody the overarching mission of HSS to provide the highest quality of care and to marshal whatever resources and expertise the hospital has to ensure that athletes and the general public can return to their former endeavors and ‘get back in the game’,” Englehart said.
Some of the events that will comprise HSS Greenwich Cup 2016 include the HSS Greenwich Cup Half-Marathon, the HSS Greenwich Cup Triathlon, and the HSS Tour de Greenwich XXXII 20-Mile bike event.
