Olympia Donates to Special Olympics MA Summer Games

Olympia Moving & Storage was proud to be a sponsor for Special Olympics Massachusetts’ Summer Games. The Games took place over the weekend of June 7-9, 2013 at Harvard Stadium, and as the organization’s official logistics supplier, Olympia crews and volunteers worked hard to make the Games a success.

Special Olympics provides year-round sports training, athletic competition and other health-related programming for athletes with intellectual disabilities. Olympia Moving & Storage contributes year-round to Special Olympics; including donations of crews & trucks for events, corporate fundraising, and employee volunteerism.  You can learn more about this partnership at

Throughout the week leading up to the Games, Olympia picked up supplies and equipment from Special Olympics’ vendors for delivery at the venue. Olympia also kept trucks and crew on hand for Special Olympics for logistics during the Games.

Before the Summer Games’ opening ceremonies, Olympia crews greeted over 2,000 athletes as they arrived and moved them into their dorms at Boston University.

On Saturday, many Olympia employees volunteered a part of their weekend to guide the track & field athletes through their events at the Games.

On the last day of the Games, Sunday, Olympia Moving & Storage moved the athletes out of their dorms and organized their bags for easy pick up on their way home.

All these services were provided to Special Olympics Massachusetts free of charge.

Mary Beth McMahon, President of Special Olympics MA, e-mailed Olympia after the event: “I cannot thank you enough for what you guys and your team did for us this weekend. We rely so heavily on volunteers in every aspect and the work your team did this weekend helping our Coaches have a much easier time with the move in and move out and our Games Management Team help to work more efficiently and effectively with logistics is really priceless. We have received such positive comments about everything you helped us with and we will make sure we share all of the great feedback.”

Matt Ruxton, VP of Sports Management, added: “I can’t begin to explain how much it helped to have you guys on site and all your help during our advance week. I think ‘Just awesome’ sums it up.”

Below are a few photos of the event, you can check out the full gallery on our Facebook page.
