What is the Unified Buddies Program?
The Unified Buddies program was created as a fun and meaningful way for our Special Olympics CO community to stay connected during these unique and socially distant times.
As an Unified Buddy, volunteers will have the opportunity to participate in a variety of social, health and fitness activities alongside Special Olympics CO athletes in a safe, virtual environment.
All activities are designed to bring athletes and volunteers together in ways that promote physical fitness, social and emotional wellness for all participants utilizing various online technology platforms (i.e. Zoom, social media, etc.)
