As a part of the FIT program, “Fall Into Fitness” is back for a second year! Fall Into Fitness is a 10-week walking program aimed at helping Special Olympic athletes stay active and lead healthy lifestyles.
The program began on September 12 and will end on November 18. The program includes a grand total of 175 participants, including Special Olympic athletes and Unified Partners. The participants are members of 12 separate delegations that compose the walking clubs. The goal of the walking clubs is to meet at least once a week to walk together to build healthy habits, stay active and maintain motivation. Along with the walking program, each athlete will complete the FIT Program pre- and post-assessments in order to monitor their fitness improvements.
