“Genuine Jersey Pride defines Special Olympics New Jersey and celebrates the impact we have on all who participate as well as those privileged to witness the magic every time an athlete with an intellectual disability takes the field, scores a goal, achieves a personal best time, or simply experiences the joy of participation. The continuing support of the Players Development Academy to SONJ helps to continue our efforts to provide these types of opportunities and create a more accepting and inclusive world for all people-with and without intellectual disabilities. Genuine is the way we approach sport in New Jersey and celebrate Pride in the athletes we serve.”
