About Healthy Community
Creating Healthy Communities Together
Special Olympics Health, made possible by the Golisano Foundation in collaboration with the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, is working to achieve inclusive health for people with intellectual disabilities, which means equitable access to quality healthcare, education, and services throughout the community. Healthy Communities is a model Special Olympics program that ensures year-round access to health care and prevention programming to help Special Olympics athletes perform at their best, on and off the field, and have equal access to quality health care, health education, and resources. Special Olympics Connecticut (SOCT) was designated a Healthy Community by Special Olympics International in 2019.
SOCT Health and Wellness programs include:
- Healthy Athletes
- Fit 5
- Unified Sports® Fitness Clubs
