Special Olympics Massachusetts Partners with Point32Health to Promote Health, Inclusion and Community Engagement

Focused on sports and training events

Marlborough and Canton, Mass., — Special Olympics Massachusetts (SOMA) and Point32Health, the parent company of Tufts Health Plan and Harvard Pilgrim Health Care, have partnered on a first-of-its-kind collaboration between the two organizations, which will focus on sports and training events including SOMA’s Massachusetts Summer Games, State Flag Football Tournament, and State Soccer Cup. Point32Health will be the Official Health Insurance Partner of the Special Olympics of Massachusetts.

“We are thrilled to partner with Special Olympics Massachusetts as we have a shared commitment to nurturing inclusion and diversity in communities throughout the state,” said Cain A. Hayes, president and CEO of Point32Health. “By advancing health and wellness initiatives that are inclusive, everyone has an equitable opportunity to improve their physical health and emotional wellbeing.”

The organizations are dedicated to promoting healthy lifestyles through resources that help individuals with and without intellectual disabilities. Point32Health is the only health plan in Massachusetts that serves all populations regardless of age or circumstance. Tufts Health One Care– which serves members ages 21-64 eligible for both Medicare and Medicaid – is designed to help support and promote healthier and complete lives for SOMA’s athletes.

“This is an exciting time for Special Olympics Massachusetts. We have found an Official Health Insurance Partner in Point32Health that understands our community and aligns with our mission to make Massachusetts more inclusive,” said Mary Beth McMahon, SOMA president and CEO. “I am also personally excited to stand alongside a partner who is so clearly committed to the Boston sports landscape. It’s great to see Special Olympics Massachusetts listed among their other prominent sports partners.”

SOMA and Point32Health will work closely together to expand reach and impact on the community, including next year’s B.A.A. 5K and throughout the weekend leading up to the 2025 Boston Marathon, as well as with other shared organizations in the professional sports world. The Law Enforcement Torch Run for Special Olympics Massachusetts will bring the Flame of Hope to Point32Health’s campus in Canton on the way to the State Summer Games in Boston this June.
