Missing all of the athletes, volunteers and Games staff. The Brockport Gym would normally be filled with loud music, excited athletes, volunteers, staff, teachers and parents. Everyone would be gathered together enjoying the opening ceremonies and anticipating the thrill of the competition.

While we are sad that the Games will have to wait another year, we know that the safety and health of our athletes and volunteers are our number one priority.

In an effort to keep the Games alive this year, we are offering the opportunity for schools to host a Games Day within their district. We would bring equipment to run a smaller scale Games Day. If your school is interested please contact us by email at [email protected].

Mark your calendars for October 14 & 15, 2022 as we will celebrate 35 years!!!

Stay safe, stay healthy and ALWAYS BE KIND!!

While we are extremely saddened that the Brockport Games have been cancelled again this year due to the on going Covid concerns. As always, our number one priority is the health and safety of our athletes and volunteers. We understand and respect the concerns of bringing together athletes and volunteers from multiple areas across state to one location as a large group.

In an effort to keep the Games alive this year, we are offering the opportunity for schools to host a Games Day within their district. We would bring equipment to run a smaller scale Games Day. If your school is interested please contact us by email at [email protected].

We have great hope that this pandemic can be put behind us and we can come back stronger in 2022 as we will celebrate 35 years.

Stay Safe. Stay Healthy. Always be KIND!!!

Today heaven gained a beautiful angel. Lorraine Root (Pam Marjanowski's mom) passed away peacefully this morning at her home. With no doubt she was greeted with loving arms by her husband Pierson. She was the mom of the Games family She was such a beautiful and strong lady inside and out. And she made the best pies!! Always a smile to welcome everyone she saw!! She so loved the Games and all of the kids. She will be greatly missed by all who had the privilege to know her. ❤ A service will be scheduled for a leter date. RIP Sweet Lorraine.

Today we would have been celebrating the 34th year of the Games for the Physically Challenged at the College at Brockport. At this time the coffee pots would be brewing, the stage would be getting set up, uniforms would be packed and brought out to the registration areas. We would be working on last minute script changes and anxiously awaiting for the volunteers and athletes to arrive. The college would once again be full of life as the buses roll in and the athletes, buddies and spectators fill the gyms. It would be the beginning of a day filled with smiles, friendships, competition and most of all, love.

Unfortunately, 2020 has temporarily changed our long standing tradition and will remain a year we will never forget. Today we will sit back and reflect on the past 33 years.

We are thankful and grateful for the successes we have had through the years and the many athletes, volunteers and families that have been touched by this very unique Games program.

We have endured challenges in the past and over come them. We will look at this as just another bump in the road of our journey. We will be back stronger in 2021.

Thank you to our many committee heads, volunteers and sponsors that continue to stand with us through these uncertain times. To all the athletes, coaches and families we will miss seeing you this year.

Be safe. Stay healthy. Always be kind. We will see you next year!!

Please take a moment to share a favorite memory or photo you may have from the Games!! ❤️
