Partnership with Kentucky Inclusive Health Collaborative
Promotes Healthy Behaviors

Wellness WednesdayThe Wellness Wednesdays program that debuted in August is returning September 30 and running into November. The sessions, which are held in conjunction with the Kentucky Inclusive Health Collaborative, will focus on teaching healthy eating behaviors. Each session will be led by a different Special Olympics Athlete Leader with the support of a clinical director. The sessions will begin on Sept. 30 and will run each Wednesday through Nov. 18. Every session will start at 3 pm (ET) and will last about 30 minutes. They will be presented via Zoom and you must register in advance.

“We’re very excited about this opportunity to work with the Kentucky Inclusive Health Collaborative to produce Wellness Wednesdays,” Said Special Olympics Kentucky Vice President of Field and Athlete Services Kim Satterwhite. “Especially at a time when our regular Healthy Athletes events have been curtailed, this is a great way to remind athletes about the importance of healthy eating habits. And we are so proud of our athlete leaders for the role they are playing in this effort.”
