With the Healthy Athletes program, Special Olympics has become the world's largest public health organization dedicated to serving people with intellectual disabilities. Mexico is the lively example for the development of various activities during August.
In the Huixquilucan region, more than 300 people received medical examinations and participated in educational activities. Then, for two days, they held a day that was divided into a Certification of the Opening Eyes initiative to professionals from the Autonomous University of Mexico as well as screenings by clinical volunteers to 110 Special Olympics athletes. Additionally, together with the ABC Medical Center, they organized the Health and Families Forum, for 50 attendees.
Another initiative that demonstrates being healthy is fun is the participation in the "Fitness Challenge" of the Golisano Foundation. This motivates the members to perform 30 minutes of exercises for six weeks.
