2019 Hall of Fame Induction Ceremony

We were so excited to welcome back our Hall of Fame MC, Special Olympics athlete Melissa Reilly to once again MC in 2019. The event took place at Fenway Park, a perfect setting for our Hall of Fame, and highlighted five inductees who have each made an incredible impact on the Special Olympics Movement, right here in Massachusetts. We thank all of the inductees for their dedication to supporting Inclusion through sports.

Melissa Reilly is a Special Olympics athlete who competes in Alpine Skiing and has represented the United States at World Games in South Korea. She is a Global Messenger helping spread the mission of Special Olympics. When not competing, Melissa works as an aide to State Senator Jamie Eldridge.
