Due to inclement weather, we made the difficult decision to CANCEL the Ellie Bloom Special Olympics event scheduled for Saturday, September 30th. This decision was made in consideration for the safety and well-being of our athletes and volunteers.
Our annual Ellie Bloom Special Olympics is a fun and inspiring free event that welcomes athletes of all ages and abilities to participate. The event was inspired by and named after Ellie Bloom, a long-time employee and supporter of the Charles River Center.
Each yearly, approximately 200 athletes participate in modified track and field events such as running and wheelchair dashes, basketball throws, relay races, and ladderball so that all who participate will be successful.
The 35th Annual Ellie Bloom Special Olympics will be held on Saturday, September 30, 2023 at DeFazio Field in Needham, MA.
- Athletes of all ages and abilities can participate in every event.
- Athletes will receive a t-shirt and medal.
- Lunch is provided after the Olympics.
