Ellie Bloom Special Olympics  



Come and join us for the 29th annual Ellie Bloom Olympics on Saturday, September 29th beginning at 9:30 am at De Fazio Park in Needham!


This fun and inspiring event welcomes athletes of all ages and abilities to participate in track and field events such as running and wheelchair dashes, tennis/softball throws, ring tosses, relay races, and frisbee throws. Every event is modified so that all who attempt to participate will be successful.  


Athletes will receive a medal for their achievement, a free t-shirt, and lunch provided by Roche Bros.  Over 150 athletes have participated in previous years.


The Olympics are named after Ellie Bloom, a long-time supporter of and volunteer at the Charles River Center.
