Healthy Athletes is a Special Olympics New Jersey program that provides free health screenings to our athletes. At Summer Games, it’s expected that thousands of athletes will go through the program.

Watch the video below to find out more about the program:

On Saturday, June 9th and Sunday, June 10th, any Special Olympics athlete, not just the ones competing at Summer Games, will be able to head to the Brower Student Center at The College of New Jersey for FREE health screenings.

Fit Feet, FUNfitness, Health Promotion, Healthy Hearing, Opening Eyes, Special Smiles, and Baseline Concussion Screenings will all be offered at Summer Games and athletes can receive a free toiletry bag, cooling towel, sunglasses and more!  Somerset Patriots, NY Red Bulls, Philadelphia Union, Six Flags, Trenton Thunder, Adventure Aquarium, and Sesame Place have all offered up generous raffle prizes for those who go through the disciplines.
