To The Editor:

Special Olympics New York -North Country Region would like to thank SUNY Canton for hosting the 2013 Summer Games on Saturday, May 4, 2013.

The SUNY Canton Athletic Department, SAAC and Sports Management students provided invaluable assistance in making the competitions a big success.

Heartfelt thanks also goes out to our Community Heroes who also gave generously of their time for our athletes: Clarkson Physical Therapy Students, Norwood Kiwanis, Norwood-Norfolk HS Key Club, Circle K Sorority @ SUNY Potsdam, Parishville-Hopkinton Student Council, Students from St. Lawrence Central, Brookfield Power, Madrid Waddington HS Key Club, Team NYSARC, NYS Police, US Border Patrol, SUNY Canton Campus Police, Massena Raiders Basketball Team, Heuvelton Leo Club and Quad Town Lions Club.

We would also like to thank a very long list of local businesses whose donations will help buy equipment, uniforms and other competition and athlete related expenses throughout the year.

Donations from the Norwood Kiwanis, Norwood-Norfolk Key Club, Canton VFW Post 1231, Gouverneur and Massena Knights of Columbus and Massena AMVETS #4 helped to defray the costs associated with these Summer games.

We appreciate everyone’s contribution in making May 4, 2013 a very memorable day for Special Olympic athletes from Franklin and St. Lawrence counties.
