Bio-Ball is a one day basketball tournament involving 16 local biotech and pharma companies and 16 Special Olympics Massachusetts basketball teams. The 16 participating companies each field a basketball team. That team is then paired with a local Special Olympics Massachusetts basketball team forming an integrated and unified team. The 16 “teams” are then divided into two divisions and spend the day competing in both individual skills and 5 on 5 competition. At the end of the day, a championship game determines the winner of Bio-Ball.
The event is sponsored by all of the providers that support the local biotech community with all of the proceeds going to benefit Special Olympics Massachusetts.
