Nearly 100 differently-abled athletes and more than 75 volunteers turned out for the annual Special Games, a field day celebration and community event presented by the Chuck Guttenberg Center for the Physically Challenged at the Kaplen JCC on the Palisades in Tenafly. For the first time since the games were launched over 20 years ago, they were held indoors in the JCC gym. Activities for children, teens, and adults with special needs from Bergen County included golf putt, basketball, softball throw, Frisbee toss, scooter races, and beach ball bop. All attendees wore Special Games tee-shirts and received ribbons for every event they participated in.
The Special Games is supported through the Chuck Guttenberg Center for the Physically Challenged, established by Adele and Bill Guttenberg in memory of their son, Chuck.
