2012 Awards Dinner Celebrates 43 Years of Achievement

By Katy Lido

American soccer star Carli Lloyd addressed the crowd as keynote speaker.

This past Friday, November 16, Special Olympics New Jersey held our annual Awards Dinner at the Princeton Westin. This special night celebrated a year of stories that represent 43 years of athletic achievement and all those who made it possible. We honored volunteers who have dedicated their lives to the Special Olympics movement, met sponsors who define commitment, paid tribute to athletes who have exceeded all expectations on the playing field, and recognized the Law Enforcement Torch Run for their fundraising and outreach efforts. Read the rest of the story and see photos of all award recipients at the link below.
