Balance 180 has been pleased to bring the Special Olympics Young Athletes Program to Alachua County. The Young Athletes Program is designed for children, ages 2-7, with an intellectual disability. The program gives the children a chance to work with their peers and build their motor, cognitive and social skills. In our summer session we have had 15 children participate and many volunteers helping out. The current session will come to an end at our culminating event on August 9.
