Unified Sports Program Part of Bulldog Nation

January 14, 2020

On Saturday, January 25th, the second annual Andrew Lawson Foundation Invitational tournament will take place at Boston Garden.  18 high school teams will face off in 9 basketball games over the course of the day to increase awareness of Special Needs athletics and raise money for the Andrew Lawson foundation. The foundation honors Andrew, who did not let his Down’s Syndrome prevent him from playing an active role in Norwell athletics.  He was also the driving force behind the South Shore Leagues’ robust Unified Sports program, which provides special needs students the chance to participate in athletics alongside their school mates.

Last year, the RHS boys basketball team played in the inaugural tournament.  This year, RHS was invited to submit a video talking about what the Unified Sports program brings to Bulldog nation.   The attached video will be played on the Garden jumbotron during this year’s tournament.
