COUNTDOWN TO THE GREAT ACTIVATION:
NOVEMBER 9 – 30, 2021
It’s Your Move!
Introducing The Great Activation. The fun and simple way to:
- Activate your fitness routine
- Be part of a community raising awareness
- Help kids and youth with intellectual disabilities or autism participate in fun and accessible fitness programs like MOVE by GoodLife Kids
As we emerge from the pandemic, so many of us are ready to get back at it. Back to socializing when it’s safe. Back to exercise and overall wellness. Back to just moving freely.
But for many kids in Canada, it’s not that simple. In fact, kids and youth with intellectual disabilities or autism all across the country often miss out on the physical activities that so many of us enjoy.
With The Great Activation you can get your heartbeat up and be part of a community supporting accessible physical activity for more kids and youth across Canada.
