The mission of the Special Olympics Healthy Athletes Program is to improve, through better health and fitness, each athlete’s ability to train and compete in Special Olympics.

The four core components of the Healthy Athletes Program are offered at Summer Games and include screenings, health education, activities and/or personal and preventive products to enhance the sports training and, ultimately, the lives of all athletes.

The components are:

  • Fit Feet (Dr. Kate Perscky and Dr. Ben Denenberg, co-clinical directors)

  • Healthy Hearing (Rebecca Holowka MS, CCC-A, clinical director)

  • Opening Eyes (Dr. Don Blackburn, clinical director)

  • Special Smiles (Dr. Greg McClure, clinical director)
