The month of February saw Special Olympics Kenya (SOK) hosting an all disciplines Healthy Athletes Screening. The Kenya Medical Training College offered its facilities to conduct the training and prior to the screening 45 volunteers from the college were trained with the help of 5 clinical directors and SOK National Director, Mr John Makathimo. SO Africa Regional Manager, Mr Joe Mutua helped oversee the event and gave a comprehensive background about Special Olympics to help orientate the volunteers.
The Screening covered the following disciplines, MEDFEST, FITFeet, Opening eyes, Special Smiles, and Health Promotion at the Pwani Special School in Kisauni, Mombasa. Clinical Director, Dr. Gome Lenga coordinated the event and the volunteers excellently: he even organised a sponsorship of 300 liters of water to ensure that no one got dehydrated during the course of the event.
Congratulations on a great event everyone and a big thank you to the volunteers from the Kenya Medical Training Col
