Massy Stores supports St. Lucia’s Special Olympics TeamThe Special Olympics World Winter Games kicked off in Graz Austria today March 14th, 2017.

St. Lucia is fielding a team of 17 at the international event and they will compete in the sport of floor hockey.  

The island’s participation is one of extreme importance to athletes, as this will be Special Olympics Saint Lucia’s (SOSL) return after a twenty (20) year hiatus from the Winter Games. Massy Stores is one of many local companies which contributed to the team’s  participation through a donation of EC $3000 towards travel expenses.

As the delegation prepared to head down to the airport on Monday, a small team from Massy Stores Boulevard met up with them to say bon voyage and wish them well on this exciting endeavour.  In addition to hugs of support, the Massy stores team also brought lots of snacks for the long plane ride ahead.

Special Olympics Saint Lucia (SOSL) is the recognized body for providing year round sports training and athletic competition in a variety of Olympic type sports for children and adults with intellectual disabilities. The non-profit organisation gives them continuing opportunities to develop physical fitness, demonstrate courage, experience joy and participate in sharing of gifts, skills and friendship with their families, other Special Olympics athletes and the community.
