Fit Feet

Many Special Olympics athletes suffer from foot and ankle pain, or deformities that impair their performance. Athletes are not always fitted with the best shoes and socks for their particular sport. 

As a part of the Fit Feet screening, volunteer podiatrists screen athletes' feet and ankles for deformities, and also check for proper shoes and socks. They are provided with community referrals as needed, and athletes, coaches and families are educated on the proper shoes and socks.
