East Preston Active Transportation Project
In July 2021, a funding announcement from three levels of government was met with great enthusiasm in East Preston and beyond as a new 1.3km active transportation trail has been given the green light. The trail will connect the daycare and recreation centre and provide much needed safe, accessible, active transportation in the area.
RNS caught up with a few people involved in the journey to learn how they got to this point, what this achievement means, and what still needs to be done.
Impact of COVID-19 on the Movement Behaviours of Kids with Disabilities and Recommendations for Building Back Better Healthy Movement
To build back better healthy movement opportunities for children and youth with disabilities during COVID-19 recovery, organizations offering sport and physical activity programming need to ensure children and youth with disabilities are not left out. Organizations can help to better support children and youth with disabilities and their families, by focusing on quality programming, capacity building, infrastructure and policies, and taking a family approach.
