Cheer for our Special Olympians


“Let me win. But if I cannot win, let me be brave in the attempt.”
– Special Olympics Athlete Oath


It’s time to get our cheer on! The 2016 Special Olympics New York State Winter Games take place from Friday to Sunday, February 19 to 21, and the competitors need us to shout our support and encouragement from the stands. Events include Alpine Skiing, Cross-Country Skiing, Figure Skating, Floor Hockey and Snowshoe, and they take place at the Mid-Hudson Civic Center in Poughkeepsie, Bowdoin Park in Wappingers Falls, Stewart Air National Guard in Newburgh and Holiday Mountain in Monticello. All events are free and open to the public. For more information or to register to cheer as a social volunteer, call (518) 388-0791 or visit
