Through With the support of Kaiser Permanente, these exams are conducted by licensed physicians at no cost to athletes and their families. They are open to existing athletes, as well as those that may be new, or interested in participating in Special Olympics.

Health Booths

Health and Fitness Booths have been integrated into community games to not only enhance the athlete experience but also to educate and engage athletes, parent’s, guardians, and coaches in health and fitness. At this these booths, we encourage athletes to visit Healthy Athlete disciplines when they are available at events and we educated coaches, parents, and guardians about the importance of Healthy Athletes.
