Fit Five at Home
Darija and Mirko are Special Olympics Youth Leaders from Montenegro who attended the 2018 Global Youth Leadership Forum in Baku, Azerbaijan and the 2019 Global Youth Leadership Summit in Abu Dhabi, UAE. Darija and Mirko are leading a Youth Innovation Project aimed at connecting athletes to fitness resources from home during the COVID-19 pandemic. Through this project, Darija and Mirko will create a mobile app which will contain Fit 5 video trainings as well as distribute at-home workout equipment to athletes.
Over the course of six months, Darija and Mirko hope to engage 40 young people with and without intellectual disabilities to make an at-home fitness group that does workouts through a mobile app. Darija and Mirko are inspiring the Unified Generation to stay engaged and healthy during the COVID-19 pandemic.
