Calling all physical therapists (PTs), physical therapist assistants (PTA), and physical therapy students: your service is needed at the upcoming Special Olympics US National Games in Seattle July 1-6, 2018.

The Special Olympics Healthy Athletes program has issued a call for PTs, PTAs, and students interested in participating in the FUNfitness screening event, which provides an opportunity for athletes to be examined in a range of areas including flexibility, functional strength, aerobic conditioning, and balance. The FUNfitness screen was developed as a collaboration with APTA and Special Olympics and is a cornerstone of an APTA-Special Olympics partnership.

Screening events are open at various times throughout the Olympics, and are preceded by training sessions for volunteers. For more information on FUN fitness, contact Vicki Tilley, Special Olympics global clinical advisor. To register as a volunteer, contact Frank Sebastian or visit the volunteer webpage.
