Dear Special Olympics Pennsylvania Athletes and Volunteers:
We are excited to announce that Commit to Fit is back and better than ever before! Once just a daily video workout series, Commit to Fit returns as an overarching campaign for the four fitness and training opportunities that Special Olympics Pennsylvania (SOPA) athletes can participate in this season and beyond.
Through sports, health, and fitness, we can become a stronger, healthier and more unified community.
Below, please find a flyer that better explains what the Commit to Fit: Be Active in a New Era campaign includes: A SONA Stride Challenge, Fitness Heptathlon, At-Home Training and In-Person Training. The first, new opportunity will be the SONA Stride Challenge created by Special Olympics North America (SONA). More details about Commit to Fit as well as the SONA Stride Challenge will be shared more broadly next week. On Wednesday, October 7th there will be a call to action for those interested to register for the Stride Challenge.
We are excited about Commit to Fit’s new and expanded program offerings; but, its success will require everyone – staff, athlete leaders, Local Program management teams, families, coaches, and our school partners — to come together, united in the same common purpose of increasing activity and improving the overall health and wellness of our athletes.
Stay tuned for more information as we endeavor to keep our athletes Active in a New Era!
