Nominated by Athletes CANAssisted by Nokia and its provincial partners, Bell Mobility sponsors Athletes Connect, a program whereby every national team athlete may receive a free cellular phone and steeply discounted cellular rates. To date, over 500 athletes have enrolled in the program, and the annual value of the services of Bell Mobility and its provincial partners is estimated at nearly $300,000. Available to Paralympic, Pan American, Aboriginal, and Commonwealth athletes, as well as Olympic team members, the Athletes Connect program has significantly improved the quality of life of athletes by allowing them to communicate more easily and affordably with their families, friends, and coaches.
