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.
If you have questions about the programming offered or want to join the committee of athletes, staff, and volunteers who run the program, email us!
Sponsors of #SOMOatHome include:
Concrete Strategies, Sertoma Club of St. Joseph, General Mills, P&G Manufacturing, P&G Paper Products, Siemens PLM, Kirksville Motor Co., Hy-Vee of St. Joseph, and JW Terrill.
#SOMOatHome sessions occur at 4 p.m. every Monday, Wednesday, and Friday via the Special Olympics Missouri Facebook page.
