Special Olympics New York is back for the 2013 State Winter Games.
The Winter Games is one of three annual state games bringing in more than 650 athletes and coaches from across the state.
The Winter State Games is an opportunity for these athletes to learn confidence as well as showcase their talents.
"One of my job coaches suggested I try Special Olympics. That was one of the best suggestions of my life. I learned so much about how to be part of a team and just how important it is to do your best," said Cori Piels, Special Olympic athlete.
