Nassau County Executive Edward P. Mangano announced today that the Nassau County Empire State Games for the Physically Challenged will take place as scheduled this year from May 30th through Saturday, June 1st at the Mitchel Athletic Complex and Nassau Community College.
In 2011 after New York State announced plans to eliminate all funding for the Empire State Games, County Executive Mangano formed the Committee to Save the Games. The Committee successfully reached its fundraising goal due to the generosity of local businesses, schools, and citizens in the community.
Opening Ceremonies took place on May 30th at the Mitchel Athletic Complex. Competition and demonstrations are today and Saturday at Mitchel Athletic Complex and Nassau Community College. Athletes ranging in age from 5 to 21, who face a variety of disabilities, will compete in track, field, slalom, swimming, wheelchair basketball and table tennis. Closing Ceremonies will take place tomorrow, June 1st, at Nassau Community College, from 6:30 p.m. to 8:30 p.m.
