2023 Healthy Athletes

Our Healthy Athletes program is changing lives throughout Maryland at large competitions like our Summer Games competition at Towson University in Towson. See an overview of how many athletes have been screened and involved with our Healthy Athletes program below. Thank you to all the medical volunteers who made Healthy Athletes possible!

The Special Olympics Maryland team along with volunteers and vendors offered 7 Healthy Athletes disciplines at Summer Games this year: FUNFitness, Fit Feet, Health Promotion, Healthy Hearing,  Special Smiles, Strong Minds, and Opening Eyes. 155 Healthy Athletes Volunteers came from KKI, UMD, Towson University, Wilmer Eye Institute, Johns Hopkins, Drayer Physical Therapy, UMES, Hearing Wellness Center, and many more!
