From March 1-3, 2024, at MetLife Stadium, teams from across New Jersey came together, donning their jerseys and tying their cleats, ready to battle it out on a professional football field. The 18th annual Snow Bowl aimed to raise funds for SONJ, enabling the organization to provide programming and support for individuals with intellectual disabilities through sport.

The 3-day, 6×6 flag football tournament raised $500,000 for the thousands of Special Olympics New Jersey athletes.

Snow Bowl is a unique fundraising event that gives players the chance to compete on the renowned turf field of the New York Giants. Five flag football games are played at once with unlimited panoramic stadium views. This year, the 2024 Snow Bowl had 91 teams compete with over 1,300 players, and over 100+ volunteers, including officials, physical therapy staff and Law Enforcement Torch Run event staff.
