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."
The involvement of State Police Troopers at this event brings great joy to the Olympians. Once again members of Troop C volunteered their time to make this event memorable for the Athletes and their families.
