New York Special Olympics (Aired on June 3 and 4, 2019)

Stacey Hengsterman, President and CEO Special Olympics New York, visits RadioRotary on the occasion of the Special Olympics Summer Games for New York State being held in Dutchess County, with Vassar College as the principal site. While we think of the Special Olympics primarily in terms of the 30 Olympic –style team and individual sports, the full program of health, education and community building tackles the inactivity, stigma, isolation, and injustice that people with intellectual disabilities face, going beyond sports events enable full social participation for people with intellectual disabilities. Listeners to the program will learn about how some 40,000 volunteers help almost 70,000 athletes—adults as well as children—strive to excel in their chosen sports. The New York State games move from region to region, and Dutchess County has been very excited to host both summer and winter games. The popularity of the Special Olympics has been a big part of “the inclusion resolution,” whose motto is “think differently.” Learn some of the ways you can be a part of this great change.
