Welcome to the #PlayUnified Podcast – formerly known as “Sports is the Catalyst” – where we meet at the intersection of sports, disability, philanthropy, entertainment and community building. Listen as we discuss why sports is such an important part of life, community and social change. Guests will include local sports figures, government officials, small business owner and figures within the Special Olympics movement.
Matt Grimes and his coach Jennifer Walsh stop by for the Special Olympics Massachusetts Podcast re-boot and discuss their time spent at the 2016 NBA Cares Special Olympics Unified game which took place during the NBA All Star weekend in Toronto, Canada. You’ll never guess who recognizes Matt in the hotel lobby after the game and gives him a huge shout out! Matt recounts the selection process and why this experience was so important to him.
