Capital District Regional Update – 5/2017

Athlete Ambassador Program
On April 27,2017 nine Athletes presented their final speeches and PowerPoint, thus completing the 2017 Athlete Leadership Program. After spending over a month working with the University of Albany’s ABEL group, these Athletes are now equipped with the skills to promote and speak on the behalf of Special Olympics.

The final presentations were heart-felt and well thought out, capturing the hearts of those in attendance.
Anne, Mother of Graduate Sarah, stated, “This program has been a miracle for Sarah. She comes home each week talking about everything she learned and is eager to work on her speech. I cannot say enough about how this has helped Sarah’s confidence”
Congratulations to our Graduates!
