2022 Bocce at the Ballpark!

On May 11th, C.C.A. Baldi Middle School, Louis Farrell Elementary and Bache-Martin School participated in the 2022 Unified Bocce at the Ballpark with the Philadelphia Phillies!

Unified sports pairs people with and without intellectual disabilities on the same team! The Phillies’ front office staff came out to participate in the event, along with former Phillies Mickey Morandini and Milt Thompson and announcer Scott Graham! We can’t thank the Phillies enough for all of their support and energy and for cultivating such an inclusive atmosphere at Citizens Bank Park!

Eunice Kenndy Shriver’s 100th Birthday

100 years ago, Special Olympics founder Eunice Kennedy Shriver was born.
Her vision was bold. Actions brave. Legacy lasting. Achievements too innumerable for one post. As we mark her centennial, we wish those connected with the #InclusionRevolution across the globe a very happy #EKS100.

We also remind everyone that the work is not done, and her vision of an inclusive world is just as relevant and urgent today. It’s up to us to continue the #InclusionRevolution! ❀
