WHS Hosts Special Olympics Basketball Tournament Sunday April 7, 2024

Dear Parents & Guardians,

Weston High School is once again hosting the Special Olympics of Massachusetts (SOMA) State Basketball Tournament Playoffs on Sunday, April 7, 2024 from 8am – 3:30pm. This is the WHS Class of 2026 official community service project, and we hope to get as many parents and students involved as possible.

The Special Olympics Mission is to provide year-round sports training and athletic competition in a variety of Olympic-type sports for children and adults with intellectual disabilities, giving them continuing opportunities to develop physical fitness, demonstrate courage, experience joy and participate in a sharing of gifts, skills and friendship with their families, other Special Olympics athletes and the community.

Ways you can donate:

Donations for Special Olympics of any amount are welcome! We use these funds to pay for the custodial fees of the gym rentals as well as the supplies and food that are provided for the athletes and volunteers. All donations are fully tax deductible. Families and individuals that give $500, $250 or $100 will be recognized as gold, silver and bronze donors on signage at the event and in the event brochure.
