Virtual Fit families & Friends
The Virtual Fit Families and Friends program is a virtual walking club that provides great opportunities for Special Olympics BC athletes to get outside, exercise, and connect with others virtually to create engaging and supportive social networks. So let’s get moving and get that heart rate up!
Virtual Club Fit
Virtual Club Fit is an option for Locals to implement. In Virtual Club Fit programs, coaches can connect with athletes virtually on Zoom on a weekly basis, and run the athletes through an at-home workout.
Weekly workouts, health discussion topics, and additional programming can be provided to coaches. Programs interested in starting a Virtual Club Fit are asked to contact Sport Coordinator Marlow de Paul by email or by phone at 604-737-3081.
SOBC Health Sponsors
Special Olympics BC’s health initiatives are made possible by the ongoing support of our provincial partners and fundraising events, including the leading role of the Government of British Columbia and Government of Canada, and the generous support of provincial partner Prospera Credit Union.
