Support for the Special Olympics


Director of Communications

Business Council President Daniel B. Walsh is asking New York State businesses to consider supporting the New York Special Olympics (NYSO).

Walsh has agreed to serve as chair of the development committee for the NYSO Summer Games, which will be held in Albany for the next two summers.

Walsh is urging business leaders in the Capital Region and statewide to consider supporting the Special Olympics by becoming an event sponsor and/or by asking their employees to become volunteers for the Summer Games.

"The athletes and these games will warm your heart more than you can imagine," he told business leaders in a recent letter urging them to be involved.

"But there are business benefits as well. If you and your employees volunteer, you'll create tremendous team spirit and good will. If you give money and become a sponsor, you'll reap tremendous marketing, public relations, and community relations benefits."

For information on sponsorship opportunities, contact Mary Freeman at NYSO 518/388-0793.
