Athletes and coaches from Special Olympics New York came to The CineHub to shoot a commercial for the upcoming 2016 State Winter Games, which are taking place in the Hudson Valley.

To help promote this local event, J6 MediaWorks offered a free 30-second commercial featuring the athletes’ excitement for the upcoming games.

New York Special Olympics Director of Development, Teresa Gilli, was also on the shoot.  She suggested everyone in the community attend a game in order to, “See the joy when they win a medal or a ribbon…their smile says it all.”

All of the athletes expressed their appreciation for the organization, many considering it “their second family.”

The 2016 State Winter Games will be held on February 19th and 20th across Dutchess, Orange, and Sullivan County. Please visit specialolympics-ny.org for more details. You can watch the video HERE.

We hope to see you there!
