The two companies will also be working to bring attention to the work of Move United, an national organization that strives to ensure opportunities in sports are accessible to everyone, regardless of their abilities. 

"Casey's is proud to partner with Gatorade to open doors for athletes through adaptive sports. Having a positive impact on the lives of these athletes makes this program extra special and is what we look for with our community partnerships. It is truly a win-win," said Katie Petru, director of communications and community at Casey's. "Shoppers can join us by supporting Move United and their local chapters or entering to win a Casey's gift card."

Additionally, for every entry customers make into the giveaway, Gatorade plans to donate $1, of up to $60,000, to be equally divided among three Move United local chapters Oklahoma Adaptive Sports Association, Catalyst Sports and Midwest Adaptive Sports. The funds will be used to purchase new adaptive equipment and support adaptive sports programming in the groups' respective communities of Oklahoma City; Knoxville, Tenn.; and Kansas City, Mo.

"Gatorade and Casey's share a passion for fueling the next generation and ensuring sports access and inclusivity," said Jennifer Schmit, senior director of community marketing and impact at Gatorade. "Our Equity in Sports initiative strives to break down barriers so all athletes can play and is what we strive for with our community partnerships."
