RESOURCES


Starting in March 2020 as a response to the coronavirus outbreak around the world, Special Olympics Missouri created a series of programming options for athletes, coaches, and volunteers to take part in from the safety of their homes. The program, called #SOMOAtHome, includes health & wellness exercises/lessons, as well as leadership and life skills courses.

The health and wellness portion of #SOMOatHome goes live at 10 a.m. and 4 p.m. every day on our Facebook channel, while the Lead-At-Home programming will offer a class every weekday, but the times may differ depending on who's leading that session. To see a full calendar of ALL upcoming #SOMOAtHome events, see below OR click here!
