Gators assist at 2012 Special Olympics Fall Games
Sage's Student Athletes at the Fall Games in Glens Falls, NY on October 20, 2012
Special Events from the 2011-2012 Academic Year
Sage's SAAC members and student-athletes recently participated in an activities that involved decorating the pediatric floor at Albany Medical Center in April of 2012.
Sage's SAAC is looking to make a difference in our community this coming year and for years to come. Among the many activities, Sage will be very involved with Special Olympics New York.
The first of many activites Sage student-athletes participated in is the 2011 State Special Olympics Fall Games in Glens Falls, NY on October 21-22.
For more information, please view this web site.
Sage's SAAC aims to support and participate community
efforts as well as student-athlete growth and connection to the
campus. Last year, a couple of members were lucky
enough to meet with Leah DeCosta and Brian McDonald of NY Speical
Olympics. These two individuals are organizers of the Special
Olympics NY. At the 2011 NCAA Convention, the Division
III national SAAC initiated a partnership with the Special Olympics
in a coordinated community outreach.
As a result, The Sage Colleges SAAC will be volunteering in the Special Olympics New York State Fall Games in Glens Falls, NY on October 21 and 22. Our Student Athlete Advisory Committee is proud to support such a wonderful organization since the Special Olympics is the largest amateur sports organization in the world.
In addition to giving our time volunteering, our organization will be fundraising money and asking for donations to support us in the Penguin Plunge for the Special Olympics. We will take 'the plunge' into Lake George- Shepard's Park Beach on November 19. This event is a fun way to raise money and fund raise for a great cause. Anyone who is interested in donating or joining the cause can visit the website for the Penguin Plunge and register under the team Sage SAAC.
Lastly, Sage's SAAC has created a program called "Buddy Teams" which will help increase attendance and support between teams.
The goal is to have Sage have a friendly competition between teams to see who can have the biggest percentage of their team show up at events. This is a great way to connect with the different teams and have our two campuses support each other.
