Pearl River Community College Helping Athletes Become Health Conscious
Camp Shelby, MS - It is the second year that Peal River's Community College Physical Therapy Assistant program is helping the Special Olympics Athletes not only warm up, but keep them health conscious.
Athletes take part in the Strive Station where PTA students assist them through an obstacle course to measure their fitness levels. This assessment helps the athletes figure out their strenghts and areas of physical improvement.
The PTA program's missions statement, "A leader in building a stronger community by providing occupational and physical training."
