Arbella & The Special Olympics of Massachusetts
For more than a decade, Arbella Insurance and Special Olympics Massachusetts (SOMA) have worked together to support local athletes in communities all throughout the state. With a focus on raising funds and awareness, Arbella has helped SOMA continue to grow and provide programs for individuals with intellectual disabilities.
Over the years, our relationship with SOMA has grown into a thriving partnership that has led Arbella to be the Presenting Sponsor of Bowl for a Goal, hosted by the New England Revolution, raising more than $500,000 for Special Olympics athletes.
To help generate additional funds, we also encourage our customers to join us in supporting SOMA. For eligible Massachusetts residents, we offer 6% off your Arbella auto insurance policy when you donate $50 or more to SOMA. For more information on this discount, contact your local MA independent agent.
In 2018, the Special Olympics movement celebrated 50 years of transforming lives through the joy of sport. At the forefront of this celebration was an initiative known as the Champions for 50, a group of 50 philanthropic leaders and organizations who were paired with a Special Olympics athlete to tell a unified story of accomplishment, acceptance, and inclusion. Arbella was included among the group of 50 and teamed up with SOMA athlete Jeremy Smith of Stoughton, MA.
Jeremy is a highly accomplished athlete, having represented SOMA all the way up to the National Games. Through this partnership, we were able to tell the wonderful story of all that Jeremy has achieved over the years, what he wants to accomplish in the future, and the importance of providing these same types of opportunities for others. Hear from Jeremy himself!
