Welcome One and All!
Welcome to my plunge page!
You know my passion for our athletes and mission--but, did you know that more than 60,000 Special Olympics Florida athletes and Unified partners receive access to health exams and compete in year-round sports competitions at no cost to them or their families? The ultimate objective of Special Olympics Florida is to help people with intellectual disabilities participate as productive and respected members of society at large, by offering them a fair opportunity to develop and demonstrate their skills and talents through sports training and competition, and by increasing the public’s awareness of their capabilities and needs.
The onset of COVID has not stopped us from striving to achieve our objectives. During the COVID-19 pandemic, our efforts have continued to highlight the health, well-being and safety of our athletes with intellectual disabilities--just a little differently. We have conducted hundreds of virtual and online health and fitness initatives which have focused on mental health, exercise challenges, mindfulness, eating right, health and hygiene--just to name a few. These have been enormously successful. However, our athletes are looking forward to getting back in the game! We are introducing videos and protocols so that this can happen safely and responsibly.
