Making the Most of March Madness

Big Foot Moving & Storage, Inc. donates services to Special Olympics’ BioBall

Big Foot Moving & Storage, Inc., a full service moving and storage company based in metro Boston, recently took part in BioBall on March 27, 2010. BioBall is a basketball tournament involving 16 local biotech and pharmaceutical companies and 16 Special Olympics basketball teams. The participating companies organize basketballs teams that are paired with local Special Olympics teams to form an integrated team. The 16 combined teams are divided in to two divisions and compete in both individual and 5-5 competition. A championship game determines the winner of BioBall at the end of the day.

The event is sponsored by all providers that support the local biotech community. All of the proceeds benefit Special Olympics Massachusetts. Teams included Archemix, Alnylam, CombinatoRx, Infinity, Genzyme, Momenta, Novartis, PAREXEL, Sepracor, and others. Big Foot donated its services to assist in the set-up and break-down of this dynamic event. “Big Foot has been actively involved in previous Special Olympics events and wouldn’t miss a chance to support such a great cause on the courts,” commented Mike Bavuso, President & CEO of Big Foot Moving & Storage, Inc.

Total Donations as of the end of March: $84,970 Since BioBall began 5 years ago, the event has raised over $310,000 for basketball programs and activities at Special Olympics Massachusetts!
