Special Olympics Kansas (SOKS) is hosting Treats and Trails across the state of Kansas in partnership with the Sunflower Foundation, UnitedHealthcare, Kansas Department of Wildlife, Parks, and Tourism, and local Parks and Recreation Departments! Athletes, families, and coaches will be able to increase physical activity, promote community connectivity, and learn how to use trails as a method of transportation to healthcare, food, work, and play while still practicing healthy virus protection during the pandemic.
Treats and Trails is a day for athletes, families, and coaches to walk on an urban trail and earn prizes (treats) for games/stations that they come across! Partners, Sponsors, and other community members will be along the trail to lead games, activities, and/or lead learning stations! SOKS will also provide pedometers to athletes and family members to track their steps along the way!
A Treats and Trails day is a monthly occurring program that will be touring to major cities such as Wichita, Kansas City, McPherson, Topeka, Manhattan, Salina, Lawrence, SEKS, and much more! Coaches can also utilize the Treats and Trails Program in correlation with the SOKS Fit 5 program: https://ksso.org/fit-5/ to keep athletes active, eating healthy, and staying hydrated!
