Bio-Ball is a unique and exciting opportunity for biotechnology companies of Massachusetts to reap the rewards of volunteerism and invest in the community by sponsoring and staffing a special kind of March Madness. The marriage of the Massachusetts biotechnology industry and Special Olympics Massachusetts centers on a shared goal: the promise of a better tomorrow. While biotechnology companies strive to discover and create the innovations that will make for a healthier future, Special Olympics Massachusetts is dedicated to empowering individuals with intellectual disabilities and other closely related disabilities by giving them opportunities to develop physical fitness, demonstrate courage and participate in a brighter tomorrow. In addition to the synergies between the two organizations, volunteers at Bio-Ball have the unique opportunity to interact with the very beneficiaries of the event itself. The Massachusetts biotechnology industry is making the promise of a better tomorrow a reality by pursuing cures for many of the illnesses and disabilities that affect these athletes. In turn, the resilience of these athletes reminds us all in the biotechnology community why we strive so hard as an industry to persevere and fight to realize our goals of curing disease.
