Hundreds of brave supporters will take to two area beaches on March 3 to jump into the Icy-cold Atlantic Ocean, raising money for Special Olympics Massachusetts. Each and everyone have their one personal story of why they do it. From just wanting to experience the cold winter waters to a personal connection, there are many stories.
Brian Stevens of Marlborough is one of those stories. Recently, the Stevens family made a substantial personal gift to the Special Olympics Massachusetts Yawkey Sports Training Center. They did it in honor of their daughter Samantha. Her photo now proudly hangs in the lobby of the headquarters of Special Olympics Massachusetts as a reminder of why so many people do things like jump into the ocean in the middle of the winter. Special Olympics has some of the most passionate and dedicated supporters and Brian and is family are some of those.
Samantha has participated in the Young Athletes Program held at the Yawkey Sports Training Center and has also received critical healthcare services as a result of the Healthy Athletes programs.
