2019 Special Olympics Florida Fall Classic Games

The 2019 Special Olympics Florida State Fall Classic Games were held in Orlando at the ESPN Wide World of Sports complex on November 15-16 . We had twenty of our current Doctorate of Physical Therapy (DPT) students, and Dr. Seok Hun Kim, Associate Professor volunteer to help out at the event. The students and Dr. Kim helped with the FUNFitness Healthy Athletes Screening process on two days during the Games. As part of the screening they assisted with identifying athlete fitness needs, helped athletes to improve balance, flexibility, and strength, and they helped educate athletes, families, and coaches.

The University of South Florida School of Physical Therapy and Rehabilitation Sciences has been helping the Special Olympics Florida for over 7 years now during their various events across the state. To learn more about the Special Olympics Florida visit: specialolympicsflorida.org.
