ParticipACTION releases annual report

- October 16th, 2011

9798873Loyal readers of this blog know that ParticipACTION, the not-for-profit national voice of physical activity and sport participation in Canada, ceased to exist in 2001 after government funding dried up.

But it was resuscitated in 2007, thanks to a $5-million lifeline from the feds (Sport Canada and the Public Health Agency of Canada).

These days, the organization that was originally established in 1971 seems to be stronger than ever.

And that’s a good thing. In this era of skyrocketing obesity rates, ParticipACTION is needed more than ever.

And here’s a message from the organization, which prides itself in being the “galvanizing force that moves Canadians to move more.”

Dear Friend of ParticipACTION,

We are delighted to share our 2010/2011 ParticipACTION Annual Report with you. The important programs we have launched in the past year with our incredible partners have moved us closer to our vision of making Canada the most active nation on earth.

Thank you to all our partners and supporters. Your ongoing commitment is crucial to helping us achieve our mandate of getting Canadians to move more, every day. To those who have supported, encouraged or embraced physical activity for themselves or on behalf of others, we salute you. You are helping us make a difference today and for future generations. And to every Canadian, we extend an invitation to join our cause. Together, let’s move Canada to get moving!

Yours in action,

ParticipACTION
