The Stucchi Family have been involved with Special Olympics Massachusetts through the Shrewsbury program for 15 years. Son Peter plays on the basketball, soccer and bocce teams as an athlete. His sister Amy and her husband Adam volunteer their time as Unified partners in basketball and fundraise for Special Olympics Massachusetts. Mother and father Debbie and Tim are bocce Unified partners, and Tim is a coach and official for basketball. They have also previously been involved with Special Olympics Colorado. Baby Summer is a bit young, but the family has big plans for her as well.
On October 2nd, the Stucchi family, along with a class of athletes, coaches, volunteers, families and sponsors, will be recognized at the 2014 Special Olympics Massachusetts Hall of Fame induction ceremony at The Yawkey Sports Training Center in Marlborough, MA.“We started primarily with Peter participating and then Debbie and I got involved as [Unified] partners and then his sister Amy got involved,” said father Tim. “And then we went from partnering to coaching and officiating a little bit, and then Peter was asked to do the global messaging, and then after that both Amy and Adam got involved in fundraising and as partners.”
“Someday Summer will be a partner,” said Debbie of her granddaughter. “She’ll be Peter’s bocce partner.”
