Special Olympics NY
Walk for Inclusion

Sunday, September 30
11AM at Nazareth College
Dear Friends:

Special Olympics is celebrating 50 years of empowering people of all abilities to reach their goals through sport, health and wellness. To celebrate this milestone, Special Olympics New York is hosting the inaugural Walk for Inclusion on Sunday, September 30, 11 a.m. at the future site of the new Golisano Training Center at Nazareth College.

The Golisano Training Center at Nazareth College will be a unique opportunity to bring together the strengths and resources of community partners to further the goal of acceptance, inclusion and understanding between people with and without disabilities while having fun and keeping fit!

I am personally taking the pledge to Walk for Inclusion and it is my hope that you and your agency will join me, our athletes, families, health partners, Unified Champion Schools, youth leaders, your fellow agencies, and our community partners as we take steps to join the Inclusion Revolution.

Save the date and spread the word.

More details will follow from Kelley Ligozio and our friends at Special Olympics New York on how to sign up and let us know you'll be joining us!

I look forward to walking with you and your agency.  The Revolution is Inclusion.
Thank You.
