2014 USA National Games

The USA National Games be centered in and around Princeton and the Greater Mercer County area. Venues will include Princeton University, Rider University, The College of New Jersey, and Mercer County Park. The New Jersey Devils have offered The Prudential Center as the venue for the Opening Ceremonies. The National Games will feature nearly 3,500 athletes competing in 14 Olympic-style sports, with the support of 1,000 coaches, 8,000 volunteers and an estimated 50,000 family, friends and spectators. Non-competitive special events will include the Final Leg of the Law Enforcement Torch Run™ that will symbolize the start of the competition and Healthy Athletes, a place where the athletes can get vital health screenings. Youth and education events will also be held in conjunction with the Games as young leaders rally around making change for the better of the Special Olympics movement and promoting acceptance of those with intellectual disabilities.

Michigan Area 1 Polar Plunge

A polar plunge is a great way to raise money for Special Olympics. The way it works is this: someone decides to do the plunge, and they get people they know to sponsor them. On the day of the polar plunge, they go jump in cold water, shiver a lot, and then report back that they have done it. Fundraising ensues.

Basketball Tournament

The White Oak Panthers will take on the Loudoun County Blazers in their second match-up this season. The Blazers defeated the Panthers in both games at their first tournament, so the Panthers will be looking for a chance to even the score. The Blazers bring an experienced core of tallish middle schoolers to bear, while the Panthers have an equally experienced and scrappy defense-heavy team. Come cheer for both teams!
