Ellie Bloom Special Olympics  




Come and join us for the 32nd annual Ellie Bloom Olympics


Saturday, September 18th

10 am

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, basketball throws, ladderball, and relay races.  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 event is held in memory of Ellie, a longtime supporter and volunteer at the Charles River Center. Ellie worked hard to develop quality programs for her daughter and many others.


This is a free event, but pre-registration is required.

Please note: there will be no walk-in registrations the day of the event.
