Special Olympics coming to Vassar!
Dear Vassar Community,
I am writing today with some terrific news: the Special Olympics New York Summer Games will be coming to Vassar in 2019 and 2020. More than 1,700 athletes and coaches will travel from around New York State to Vassar College and Dutchess Community College, as well as other locations throughout the county, to compete in a variety of sports from June 14-16, 2019 and on June 19-21, 2020.
Vassar will host the opening and closing ceremonies, many of the Games, as well as serve as the center of lodging for athletes and their families—it is going to be an exciting time!
For more information, check out our press release or one of the many news and social media stories circulating.
As the Games get closer we will share more specifics so we can all be there to cheer on our New York Special Olympics athletes!
