As you may have seen on Good Morning America, Special Olympics and Bank of America are partnering to launch the first ever Unified Relay Across America. This is the latest initiative in a long-standing partnership between both organizations that has impact nationally and locally.

Locally, Bank of America has been a great partner of Special Olympics Massachusetts (SOMA) for many years. In 2015, Bank of America has provided SOMA with a $25,000 grant and will be the Presenting Partner of SOMA’s “School Day Games”.  The largest component of SOMA’s school partnership programs, “School Day Games” are one-day events offering athletic competition for students and school teams. These events involve entire school communities. They are designed to introduce participants to Special Olympics, while also promoting acceptance, inclusion, and opportunity for all students.  Thanks in large part to Bank of America,  SOMA and its school partners will organize over 31 “School Day Games” state-wide in 2015, with over 400 schools and 4,500 athletes participating.

Please stay tuned for more information about this great and dynamic partnership between Bank of America and Special Olympics.
