Fit Feet is being offered at the Region 8 District Basketball Tournament on Sunday March 3rd at Homestead High School in Mequon. Athletes are encouraged to stop by the cafeteria between 11:00am and 3:00pm for a free Fit Feet screening and pair of socks (provided their size is in stock)! We also have orthotics available for those athletes in need. Join us at the Fit Feet venue to take advantage of this great service!
What is Fit Feet?
Fit Feet helps Special Olympics Wisconsin (SOWI) athletes step up to the plate in sports and in everyday life through free podiatric screenings.
Many athletes suffer from foot and ankle pain, or deformities that impair their performance. In fact, up to 50% of Special Olympics athletes experience one or more preventable or treatable foot conditions that can affect their sports participation. Often, these individuals are not fitted with the best shoes and socks for their particular sport. To alleviate these problems, volunteer podiatrists work with SOWI athletes to evaluate problems of the feet, ankles and lower extremity biomechanics.
Fit Feet was developed in collaboration with the American Academy of Podiatric Sports Medicine (AAPSM) and the Federation of International Podiatrists (FIP).
