Albany -  Hundreds of athletes from all over the state are on their way to Albany right now for the Special Olympics Fall Games.

Workers were busy setting up Bocce courts today at Gordon Sports Complex. That's where all the action gets underway Friday with Bocce and softball kicking off at 11:30 AM. The events continue all weekend, so what's your biggest role in the games? Cheering on the athletes.

Games Director Josh Hanson said, "You ask any of our Special Olympic athletes what they like about competition and they're going to tell you people cheering for them. So, even if there's not a place for you to volunteer in a special role, we ask people to come out, watch the games, be a fan in the stands. Make signs for our athletes as they compete and you can just see them light up when that happens."

This is the third and final year for the Special Olympics Fall Games to be held in Albany. Find out more about the games and complete schedule of events by clicking here.
