Date:6/19/2009

U.S. Senator Amy Klobuchar to visit Healthy Athletes Village and hand out awards

MINNEAPOLIS, June 20 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- Today is the last day to catch Summer Games action at the University of Minnesota! U.S. Senator Amy Klobuchar will visit Healthy Athletes Village today from 9:30-10 a.m. and will hand out awards to Special Olympics Minnesota athletes from 10-10:30 a.m. at Bierman Field.

Healthy Athletes is an initiative designed to increase the health and fitness of people with intellectual disabilities, a medically underserved population. The Healthy Athletes program works to improve access to health care by providing free screenings, making referrals to local health practitioners and training health professionals and students about the needs of people with intellectual disabilities.

Healthy Athletes Village will offer MedFest, Opening Eyes, Health Promotion, a Health Fair and blood glucose screenings by the International Diabetes Center from 9 a.m. until 3 p.m. today. MedFest, which runs from 9 a.m.-1 p.m., is an opportunity for current and prospective Special Olympics Minnesota athletes to receive a free sports physical, a requirement for Special Olympics registration.

Volleyball will take place at the University of Minnesota's Recreation Center (1906 University Avenue SE) from 9 a.m.-4 p.m. and tennis competition will be held at the University of Minnesota's Baseline Tennis Center (1815 4th Street SE) from 9 a.m.-1 p.m. In addition, artistic gymnastics competition will start at 2:30 p.m. and conclude at 5:30 p.m. at Mini-Hops Gymnastics Club in Minnetonka (131 Cheshire Lane, Suite 100). Festivities will continue in Olympic Town, adjacent to Bierman Field, from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m.

Special Olympics Minnesota offers children and adults with intellectual disabilities year-round sports training and competition. Through Special Olympics' athletic, health and leadership programs, people with intellectual disabilities transform themselves, their communities and the world.
