Basketball

On April 12th, 2019, Bensalem High School hosted the Bucks County Special Olympics Basketball team in two high-spirited games. The competition was intense and the games were exciting to watch. A great time was had by all of the athletes---parents, coaches, and spectators too!

 

Colby Classic

Colby Umbrell volunteered for the Central Bucks Aquatics site while he was a student at Central Bucks High School East.   His family is quoted as saying "Colby loved and admired the Special Olympics athletes.  Sports came easy to him but he helped others overcome their obstacles."  He quickly became a wonderful and caring volunteer to the entire swim team.  He is still fondly remembered by many of the swimmers.  After graduation Colby attended John Hopkins University.  Following his college graduation he joined the Army in the Parachute Infantry Regiment and served in Iraq.  Unfortunately he lost his life defending his country and his fellow soldiers in May, 2007.  Every year a memorial walk/run is held in Doylestown.  Proceeds from the walk go to various charities.  Special Olympics has consistently been one of the recipients.  The Umbrell family supports the CB Special Olympics Swim Team to help defray the cost of the spring aquatics invitational.  In honor of Colby the spring invitational was renamed the COLBY CLASSIC
