Fit Families & Friends

Let’s keep moving together!

Special Olympics BC Fit Families and Friends programs can be offered in communities around the province. Typically, communities offer Fit Families & Friends in the summer months when traditional Special Olympics BC sport and youth programs are on vacation.

During in-person Fit Families & Friends programs, Special Olympics BC athletes and supporters connect for weekly sport and exercise outings like walks or hikes, followed by fun chats about healthy eating. Fit Families & Friends creates connections and encouragement for athletes and supporters to stay active together! Special Olympics BC can provide communities with week-by-week program guides and support to make it easy and fun to offer this summertime activity.

If there isn't a Fit Families & Friends program in your community – and/or if you want extra ways to stay active and healthy – Special Olympics BC invites everyone to use the SOBC wellness challenge calendar!

SOBC health calendars provide daily health and wellness challenges, as well as training resources and tips to stay active and fit throughout the month!
