As a part of our commitment as a Healthy Community, we are always looking at ways to improve the overall well-being of our athletes even when they are not officially training and competing.

Walking Club

The Unified Walking Club program brings together people with and without intellectual disabilities and provides opportunities for physical fitness while inspiring friendship among participants! Each walking club meets once a week at a location within its own community and is led by a team leader.

Participation Perks

The team leader and Special Olympics New Jersey athletes over the age of 16 receive a Garmin Vivofit fitness band for free in order to keep track of steps and possibly earn incentives along the way!
