Special Olympics Massachusetts, Boys & Girls Clubs of Boston and the Boston Police Department will host Boston’s Inclusive Community Sports Day at the James W. Hennigan School in Jamaica Plain on April 27.
This is the first time Special Olympics Massachusetts and Boys & Girls Clubs of Boston have partnered with each other for this kind of event. The goal of the event is to come together as a community to celebrate inclusion and wellness while providing information about the work done by Special Olympics Massachusetts and Boys and Girls Clubs of Boston.
There will be free activities for all ages and abilities, including sports stations for soccer and track & field, fitness activities, yoga, wellness booths, nutrition tips, healthy foods from the Fresh Truck, Boston Police Department ice cream truck and so much more!
Everyone is welcome: families, children, teens, and adults, those with and without disabilities, Boston residents and non-Boston residents. Attendees are welcome to stop by for a few minutes or stay the whole day.
Opening ceremonies will begin promptly at 10 am with special guest speakers including Boston Police Commissioner William Gross, President and CEO of the Boys & Girls Clubs of Boston Josh Kraft, and President and CEO of Special Olympics Massachusetts Mary Beth McMahon.
The event is from 10 am to 3 pm. Pre-registration is strongly encouraged. Pre-register at www.specialolympicsma.org/event/inclusive-community-sports-day.
