Get moving with us Special Olympics! This week we ask you to post a photo of yourself doing at least one (but we challenge you to all of them!) of the December Wellness Challenge Calendar active and positive challenges. We have:

3) December 12: 5-minute cardio workout
4) December 13: 5 minute abs workout
5) December 14: Upper body workout

The above workouts are a great start to movement to get your body warm and ready for a short walk, run or your home, in your backyard or neighbourhood. Remember to always practice physical distancing, wear the proper shoes, and dress warm if you are going outdoors.
