Nazareth College breaks ground for Special Olympics training center

Nazareth College in Pittsford conducted a groundbreaking ceremony last month for the Golisano Training Center for Special Olympics.

The 91,000-square-foot facility will provide an indoor track, field, courts and training facilities to promote the fitness and wellness of Nazareth students, as well as provide a training center for athletes of all abilities and ages through Nazareth’s partnership with the Special Olympics of New York (SONY).

Tom Golisano, who has donated $7.5 million for the $23.5 million fitness center, and Special Olympics International Chairman Tim Shriver, spoke during the June 14 ceremony, according to information from the college.

Shriver spoke about importance of Nazareth’s commitment to creating a new model of inclusion, fitness and wellness for athletes with intellectual disabilities.
