The Wellness Center at Lambs Farm focuses on helping Participants lead healthy lifestyles through diet and exercise programs, activities, sports and education.
This winter, athletes are staying busy competing in their favorite Special Olympic games. They kicked off the season by participating at snowshoeing districts and came home with two gold, three silver and five bronze medals. Hours of hard work and practice paid off for both Lambs Farm basketball teams, High Rollers and Wrecking Crew. Thanks to their dedication and teamwork, both teams pulled out a win and took second in the tournament overall.
Participants also recently competed in FUNdamentals. This inclusive program is designed for those who are unable to compete in traditional Special Olympic games. FUNdamentals has modifications for floor hockey, soccer, bocce ball and basketball to ensure that everybody can have fun together while playing the sports they love. After seeing the smiles on their faces, we know that our FUNdamentals athletes had a great time competing and earning medals.
Many Participants enjoy staying active by spending time in our regulation-sized gym before work or in their free time. They play games, hop on a bike or run on the treadmill while catching up with their friends. Recreation staff are helping Participants stay motivated on their wellness journeys with a theme for 2023: Sheep Shape. With cool activities and rewards, Participants will work on getting into a regular exercise routine in order to reach the overall goal of getting into sheep shape.
Our athletes have a lot to look forward to this spring. We can’t wait to watch them pursue their own passions as they continue to learn about the importance of health and wellness.
