Thank you to the 10 teams that participated in our 2nd Annual Unified Government Bocce Challenge on April 16th at the PA State Capitol! Senators Pat Stefano, Michele Brooks, and Jay Costa, as well as representatives from Governor Tom Wolf’s Office, the PA Department of Education, Geisinger Health, the Pennsylvania Office of Vocational Rehabilitation, Senator Bob Casey’s Office and more came out to #PlayUnified with our athletes.

The challenge paired participants with Special Olympics PA (SOPA) athletes for a fun competitive and social experience. The teams were divided into 3 divisions with a total of 10 teams, and competed on one of three bocce courts. Competition rounds were 12 minutes long with 5 minute transition periods in between. Each group played 4 rounds in order to determine a 1st, 2nd, 3rd, and 4th place team in each division. Teams competed in a round robin format and enjoyed food, drinks, camaraderie and friendly competition.
