State Police to Volunteer at Special Olympics Winter Games
On both days, Massachusetts state troopers will volunteer their time to present Olympians with their individual awards. When not participating in the presentation ceremonies, troopers will spend time with the athletes, their families, and their coaches. Troopers will discuss the role of police officers and answer questions about their jobs.
"We are honored to be able to assist with this wonderful event, and I am extremely proud of our state troopers who, once again, are donating their time to help make these Games a success," said Colonel Marian J. McGovern, superintendent of the Massachusetts State Police.
According to the Special Olympics Web site, "The Games include approximately 2,000 athletes and coaches, as well as 1,500 volunteers under the guidance of the professional Special Olympics Massachusetts State Office staff. The Winter Games give athletes another chance during the year to train and compete in the sports they adore. The Special Olympics Massachusetts Winter Games are a great opportunity for athletes to showcase their love for winter sports and another opportunity for them to experience a full and vibrant lifestyle."
Media are asked to kindly consider covering the event if your schedules permit.
