FROM SOBC Virtual Kelowna Office: Please see the following message from SOBC Manager of Community Development Thompson-Okanagan Reanne Holden.
As a part of Special Olympics BC’s Healthy Communities initiatives, Kelowna athletes alongside their families and friends are invited to take part in a Fit Family and Friends project right here in our community!
This is a great opportunity for our athletes to get active with their family, friends and social supports. Together, the group takes part in a weekly walk, tracking kilometers as they go and then shares a healthy snack afterwards. The Fit Family and Friends program creates more opportunities for SOBC members to support athletes of all abilities and increase the entire group’s overall health in a fun, social setting! Please see the attached PDF for more information on the Fit Family and Friends program and how to register your group.
