By Lynn Erickson

Today, CVS Caremark announced that it has awarded a $50,000 grant to Special Olympics to help expand the organization's Healthy Young Athletes program, which provides healthcare services and support, early childhood intervention, and preventative education to children with intellectual disabilities aged 2-7 years old. Funding for the program was provided through the CVS Caremark All Kids Can program, which supports organizations that are helping all children on their path to better health.

The funding will help Special Olympics expand Healthy Young Athletes into new geographies, with 15 events taking place throughout the United States. Locations will include: Arizona, Illinois, Louisiana, Michigan, Minnesota, Nebraska, New Hampshire, New York, North Carolina, Pennsylvania, Rhode Island, South Carolina and Wisconsin.
