ShopRite and General Mills have unveiled a new limited-edition, commemorative Wheaties box in celebration of the 2014 Special Olympics USA Games, to be sold exclusively at ShopRite stores.
Featuring ShopRite associate Derrick Noble, a Special Olympics New Jersey flag football player, and his brother and teammate, Delon, the commemorative box represents ShopRite's continued support of the games, which this year will be held June 14-21 at Mercer County, N.J.
“I am so honored and grateful to be on the box as it is such a great honor,” said Noble. “Being on the box makes me feel famous — like my brother and I are celebrities. Most of all, I love playing sports and want to lead my team to victory, going for the gold.”
