2018 - SOMA Summer Games
On August 25th and 26th, MA HOBY volunteered at the Special Olympics Massachusetts (SOMA) Tournament of Champions in Marlboro. On Saturday, 27 volunteers helped with the bocce games by officiating and cheering on athletes as they competed. Additionally, 14 volunteers worked with young athletes, aged 3 to 7 years old, by taking them through fun sports stations as part of the “My First Sports Experience” program. Then, those volunteers enthusiastically danced with athletes during the tournament’s Saturday night celebration. On Sunday, 28 volunteers continued to officiate bocce games and awarded medals to athletes. MA HOBY’s service was greatly appreciated and recognized by SOMA employees and athletes!
