Champions for Champions Initiative for Hudson Valley— Regional Leadership Council MessageThe Special Olympics, New York, Hudson Valley Region, through the guidance of the State of New York Special Olympics, and the realization of programmatic goals over the next twelve to thirty-six months for Special Olympics New York, Hudson Valley, has decided to launch a $450,000 Champions for Champions: A Legacy of Care initiative, raised from corporations, foundations and individuals over the next 18 months.

Special Olympics works toward providing lifelong sports experience for its participants. As an organization, it continues to shape itself according to the changing developmental needs of its athletes as they transition through childhood, adolescence and adulthood.

Along with the actual costs of the essentials that Special Olympics New York, Hudson Valley delivers to our community, e.g., transportation, uniforms, gas, food, lodging, the training of our athletes, etc., the intangibles, which will both be funded through this initiative, will ensure the longevity, success and growth of Special Olympics New York, Hudson Valley programs and will be the marked margin of improvement in our mission going forward.

Inspired by a powerful alignment of mission, purpose and direction, Special Olympics New York, Hudson Valley is moving forward for the betterment of the region and the state. With aspirations higher than ever, we invite all to join in this pivotal leadership effort. Together we can greatly accelerate progress and deliver its benefits to those in greatest need here and throughout the state of New York.
