Bruins announce $1 million partnership with Special Olympics Massachusetts

A great gesture for a great cause.

Tampa Bay Lightning v Boston Bruins - Game Four

A good day for good news! The Bruins announced this morning that the Boston Bruins Foundation will donate $1 million to Special Olympics Massachusetts over the next three years.

The donation appears to be part of their “B-Inclusive” campaign, and is, according to a press release, the largest donation ever made by the Boston Bruins Foundation.

Here’s some more detail on the partnership, from a Bruins press release:

Special Olympics athletes will also be in attendance on Opening Night on Monday, October 8 when the Boston Bruins take on the Ottawa Senators at TD Garden. The athletes in attendance will partake in an array of experiences such as bench assistants, high five lines, and ice resurfacer rides. The Bruins will continue to highlight Special Olympics athletes in game throughout the season.

In addition to highlighting and honoring Special Olympics athletes throughout the season, the Bruins and Special Olympics Massachusetts will work together to educate fans on the impressive work that Special Olympics Massachusetts is doing in the community, and most importantly, the incredible talent and determination demonstrated by the athletes.

Good stuff from the Jacobs family and the Boston Bruins Foundation!
