Funding for athletes who visit the COVID Education and Vaccine Tent.
SOWI has received grant funding from the Wisconsin Department of Health Services (DHS) to provide ongoing education surrounding COVID. We are focused on utilizing these funds to help athletes at the local level and passing monies through to the local programs. We will be providing COVID Education and Vaccine Clinic at the Celebration Games on Saturday, July 30, from 1-4pm on the lawn outside the Healthy Athletes venue (near the library and Hastad Hall) and Sunday, July 31, from 11am – 3pm inside Hastad Hall. Any athlete that stops by to hear a brief explanation of education materials delivered by SOWI Athlete Health Messengers can receive a $10 payment to offset transportation costs to the Celebration games. For those who choose, COVID vaccines/boosters provided by DHS clinical staff will also be available.
As the Local Program Manager, you may choose how your local program would like to receive these funds. Options include a transfer into your SOWI account or a check payable to the local program following the Games for the total number of athletes who attended from your program; or a $10 Kwik Trip gas card given directly to the individual athlete that day.
